I had 4 neonate rosy boas and a neonate sandboa escape. In all 5 cases, I ended up finding the snakes, sometimes weeks after, and if you could see where, they were found no more than 15ft away from the cages. One was actually crawling around the rack about a week after escape, even though I searched the room many times prior. It is likely that they don't move far, but they hide well, so keep looking. One was in the computer case unharmed even though the computer had been on. Of course I looked there last.

In contrast, I've had a few milks and kings escape over the last decade. Of those, only one kingsnake (a ruthveni, which is a montane king that probably in the wild doesn't move very far) was found within 20 feet of the cages. The rest were seen in the backyard or in the street (in most cases just a few days after escape) or not at all. The snakeroom was upstairs in my house. Goes to show you how kings and milks are much more mobile.

Assorted rosy boas, some annulata. That's it.
