I did something similar. I was filling the tank, on the phone, walked away taking, went into the other room, the python slipped out of the tank so I watered the hard wood floors for a good 5 minutes before I heard my full name being screamed from the other room. lol, it was bad. And btw.... Bounty is NOT the quicker picker upper!!!
