Talking Pursey is back!!!!

well some of the user's here i told that pursey escaped. awhile typing like 20 minute's ago, i heard a noise behind me. i look back, that's where the bird cage is (behind me) and of course i see the cage, but something was in the corner, it was pursey i was so happy and shocked when i found him, he is like my best friend!!! i immediately take him out and tell my parents. i still don't understand how he got up there because the bird cage is on a metal frame stand. when i go back into my room i found the cat under the bird cage (of course i scare her off), and check on the birds. they where staying in the top of the cage supposely terrified to come down. we gave pursey water, and tried to feed him, he still refuses to eat mice. but he didn't give me any problem, he wasn't really scared or defensive at all. also does anyone has a good idea of getting a hognose to eat? we checked for toads, but there like 50 or 20 bucks outrageous for food.
here is a pic of him, just took it right now:

don't mind the drawing he was sitting there, lol

I'm glad you found him, the thought of a snake going round your house on its own doesn't scare you?it could kill you while you sleep! (sorry im a bit of a wimp)

I don't think a tiny hognose is any threat at all...
Glad you found your little buddy.

Snakes are very talented animals, BL... you can see, I flipped over the couch.. while the snake watched me from above.


The best thing to do is to warm him up to the proper temperature... a cold snake doesn't have the energy to eat anything.

Yep. Don't think theres many species that are smaller than 10 inches. They are non venomous, and aren't constrictors, so they are harmless.
If you don't like snakes, stop reading the snake threads. ;)
