DH just informed me that we have a baby snake lose in the basement!

 

We started out with one he brought up from the pond which he put in a plastic turtle box (lucky me!)!  

 

The other he found on the floor and thought he had lost the first!  Where did this one come from?  Who knows!

 

Find the *******thing!

My son loved animals and worked in pet shops while he was in school.   I never knew what I was going to find in his room.   Fortunately he never kept a snake as a pet but there were plenty of other vile things.

Awwwww! That snake in the picture is so cute!

 

I once had a male cat that would bring home garden snakes and geckos.

 

I would always pick them up and put them back outside, where they could and would eat bugs.

Check into what kind of snake it is. We have black snakes around us (one lives in our front garden and sleeps under the steps during the day). My parents had one in their basement for YEARS. Not once did they have any type of bug, mouse ANYTHING in their basement.

 

People spend up to a thousand for them to  place in their vacation cabins/homes in the mountains/at the bay. Why? Because the snakes are not poisonious, they don't want anything to do with humans, they hide other than to hunt (at night, in the dark) and they are AMAZING hunters. They keep the vacation homes/cabins insect and rodent free.

@SahmIamThey are black snakes and I know they do eat mice and bugs.  I much prefer an adult black snake because they stay out of your way, OR an  elephant.  I know where that is.
