This is honestly the first time this has happened in over 20 years of keeping snakes. Feeding my only two live feeders small rats when one rat makes a break for it and gets away!  Now he's somewhere wondering around my house Smile My Jack Russell will go nuts if he sees it!!

I've had live feeders in the past and use to have 30 female breeder rats in my garage.

Never had an escapee.

I've had a mouse hop right out of my hand before and had to chase it down, those little guys are fast.

One of the mouse hoppers we were giving to the baby BP's lived up to its name a few weeks ago. It popped right out of the hatchling tub when we peeked in to check on it. We did catch him but it took quite a while - those things are lightning quick.

Ive done pretty good, a drop or two and chasing down quick but no real escapes. They cant really get anywhere.


I did have one incident with a bunch of ASF getting out awhile back when we had a separate outdoor breeding area, safe to say it was not fun rounding them all up, I think that was the last straw and i got rid of them after that.

I've lost about four or five between feedings, not eatings and removing from the snakes housing.  I think I have two stacks of the heaviest enclosures ever made so it's always a blast when they get under there.  It involves a broom handle to corral the out and a lot of patience.
