My 3ft Ball Python went missing 2 days ago. I have read most of the forums replies and tricks to finding them. Im just a little confused on how and where to set up these traps to catch him. The trap with a mouse as bait, I dont understand if I should use a cage with a live mouse in it, or a box with a hole in it with a dead mouse in it? Also, what scent does the mouse emit from itself to attract the snake? If your snake has never eaten a dead mouse will he still eat them. Its two days after his normal feeding day, so I think hes hungry. Oh yeah, should I put a heatpad under the device I am going to use? It would help a great deal if anyone could help me on my quest to find my Ball.

Chris
