Cyrus my corn snake is still AWOL and it's coming up to 3 weeks now since his grand escape out of a small hole (the the cable inlet) on the viv top. This is the longest he's ever been gone without me discovering him hiding somewhere!
Assuming he's still in my flat, I'm not too worried about him, but what about when I let my Burmese python out for his daily wander? He's getting ready to do that now, after feeding and defaecating last week, and I'm not sure what would happen if they were to come across each other.

What's the chances of either attacking each other, or even more importantly, the Burm eating the corn snake?

I think the most likely thing that will happen if they meet is that they will ignore one another. The corn snake doesn't have the right smell or temperature to trigger a feeding response from the burm, and probably isn't large enough either.

Slim to none. Burmese Pythons are not known to eat other snakes (although some accounts in the wild are stated on rare occasions); in the case of a corn snake, a Burmese Python would expend more energy in subduing and the act of eating a puny (compared to a Burm) Corn snake than what it would derive from it.
