I do have a story of a Ball Python that was lost during the Hurricanes in Fl.(Frances and Jean) If that would help I will be happy to supply the details. Joan
Ball Pythons are one of the smallest snakes in the Boid family and even smaller than a rat snake. I also have stores about Bearded Dragons. They were in Nihms Island and Holes. Or a couple of hatchling Leopard Geckos that made and escape and how they were found. Joan
What I will do is tell you what had happened and if it suits your purpose, then you can accept, if not, at that time I can opt out and you can see if someone else can help. Please let me know if that would work for you. Joan
This snake named Bubba lived with a family and a teenage boy, Sonny, who loved him. They lived in a Mobile home. When Florida had had back to back Hurricanes Frances and Jean the family was forced to leave their Mobile Home and stay in a Hurricane Shelter. The Storm ripped through their mobile home destroying much of the house and this inluded knocking over the habitat that Bubba was housed in. When the family came home when the all clear was given, they noticed Bubba's tank empty on it's side, tghe glass cracked and Bubba gone. It was a very hard thing for the family to take, as Bubba was part of the family. Most of the funiture was gone, the beds and couches, takes and chairs would all have to be replaced. The family decided since they had their work cut out for them, they would stay at the house, but without beds they decided to use sleeping bags. When the got done with some of the cleaning they bedded down for the night. about 2 am Sonny felt something in his sleeping bag... He grabbed the lantern since there was no power. He pulled back the top of the sleeping bag to find Bubba curled up in a Ball next to him. It was quite a reunion. Sonny brought Bubba into the clinic to be checked out and other than some cuts and scratches was not too worse for wear. Since then they have been inseparable.
We are having problems posting pictures right now, but I can get you a link for a picture of a Ball Python. Joan
The teens name was changed.
The real Bubba has since Crossed The Rainbow Bridge. His owner is Stationed in Iraq now and the family has moved. The Mobile Home Park was in Lake Worth, Florida. You can get back to me in this thread as all posts are archived. This happen in 2004, 6 years ago. I wish I could help you with the picture, but some time has passed, since this happened. Joan
