I never lost a snake, but i did lose a blue tongued skink a few months back. He's about 2 ft. long and chubby and slow, but he got lost for 11 days! I found him stuck in the box spring under my bed. He was so fat he couldn't get out. He ended up being just fine, other than very thirsty and very hungry.
"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."-Unknown
