    My snake is dead now :(

    She got out and hid behind the fireplace. I had to smell her roasting for an entire night. Terrible, terrible experience because there was no way to get her out from behind the insert after the fire was rolling.

    Sorry to hear that man. I know you were looking for her for a while now. Wish it could have turned out better than this. :(

    It was a ball python that I had for about three years. She was still young, no more than four or five years. I bought her off of a family that wasn't treating her right and didn't want her.

    She was my only pet, ever. At least she was the only one that I actually owned myself. My family really doesn't seem to care -- they even started a fire in the fireplace tonight without getting the dead body out. You can even see a trickle of blood coming out of the bottom of the front of the fireplace. I asked my dad if we could get her out and he said: "It won't hurt to leave it there."

    She was already long dead (remember, the whole basement stank) before anyone realized that the smell was her behind the fireplace. You could hear hissing for a little while, but we thought that it was steam coming off of the top of the fire place from water going down the chimney.. that happens a lot and the sound is shockingly similar.

    My dad, his friend, and myself were drinking a few weeks ago and I got her out to play with her. I was distracted by something and I let my dad hold her. He let her crawl around on the pool table and I ended up going to bed not long after. Both of us had forgotten she was out and she escaped.

    The fucked up part of that was my dad and his friend told me they found her outside frozen to death and they were just going to leave her there. I believed them since I was so busy at the time between college and work the only time I had at home was to sleep for a few hours at night.

    Well, a few days later I found out they were lying and she was alive. She's gotten out before and usually just turns up in a dark corner or on top of a shelf at night.

    Not this time. :sad:
