I have been reading about a study involving Burmese pythons and how they almost always return to their home Territory or the location of their birth if moved. Recently, I had to move my collection out of my snake room because of a water issue. During the process of moving, one of my 2012 kings escaped via a busted lid. Because they were in my living room, a good ways from the snake room, and it was full of nooks to escape, I figured he was a goner. But me and my spouse had talked about the homing thing, and wondered if the snake would head back to the room of its birth. Not sure if its a coincidence(I think not) But 2 days later, the snake turned up in the snake room, where he was born. There was a million spots to vanish, yet he did not. Any thoughts on this? Do you guys think he homed back to the room, or was it just a random thing?
