Hi,The Ball Python can survive in warmer humid weather, but the problem problem is when the snake gets hungry he may go after squirrels or other small animals in the area. You could set up a small cage with a mouse in it and put near the bush where he can small it and you may be able to catch him that way. Make sure to notify the local animal care and control and place notices up around the neighborhood. May people see a snake and may try to kill it, so it is very important to let people know it is a pet to protect his safety. He will come out in the evening to lay on hot pavement to stay warm at night, so you will want to look as it gets dark in the evening. You best bet is a caged prey to try and get his attention and recapture him. Please get notices up so people know you are looking for him.

Hi,Do not give up on finding him. Check the Animal shelter and notify the local police station in case they get a snake call. Put up posters as well in case someone spots the snake. I have seen them found after a year of being missing. Do not give up hope.Please take a moment to Rate my service so I can be compensated for my times and answers.Joan
