I got a phone call at work here from a roommate in distress that found a snake in the basement... Not sure how it got down there, but phone reports says it smells, and isn't really moving quickly.
What do I do with this thing? It's 20 out right now, and there's 6 inches of snow on the way tomorrow. I don't want to just throw it out and let it die, but I don't want to keep it either. Any easy way to keep this thing in something for a week until it warms up and let it back out into nature?
Also what kind of snake is this? Sorry it's a camera phone pic.
