Lemmikkikäärme nielaisi koko pyyhkeen – uskomaton video pelastusoperaatiosta

Ohhoh! · Tim Isokivi

Käärmeet voivat tunnetusti nielaista kokonaisena suuriakin saaliita. Eräs australialainen lemmikkikäärme oli omistajiensa kauhuksi hotkinut suuhunsa kokonaisen rantapyyhkeen.

Monty Python -niminen viidakkomattopyton toimitettiin Sydneyn Small Animal Specialist Hospital -eläinsairaalaan. Lääkäri nukutti kolmimetrisen matelijan ja selvitti röntenkuvan avulla, mihin kohtaan vatsaa pyyhe oli ehtinyt kulkeutua.

Pyyhe onnistuttiin Time-lehden mukaan lopulta poistamaan käärmeen sisältä pihtien avulla. Ahne matelija toipui koettelemuksestaan nopeasti. Operaatio ikuistettiin eläinlääkärin Facebook-sivulla jaetuksi videoksi, joka on sittemmin levinnyt viraalina verkossa.

 

Monty Python and The Missing Beach Towel

😱 🐍 Monty Python and The Missing Beach Towel😳 We see all kinds of interesting cases in our Avian and Exotics Department, but it's not every day we see something quite as unusual and as extraordinary as this case. Monty is an 18 year old Female Jungle Carpet Python weighing 5 kg and 3m long, who presented to Dr Olivia Clarke at our Avian and Exotics Department at SASH after she was seen eating an entire beach towel the night before! Monty was anaesthetised and radiographs were taken to confirm the location of the start of the towel.A flexible endoscope was placed down Monty's gastrointestinal tract, which allowed us to visualise the end of the towel sitting in her stomach. With assistance from our internal medicine team, very long forceps were placed through the endoscope and used to grasp the towel. Once we had a good grip, the towel was able to be carefully removed from the gastrointestinal tract with endoscopic guidance. It was smiles all round and we're happy to report that both Monty and the beach towel have lived to see another day! Monty was discharged from hospital the same day and her owner reports she is back to her happy, hungry self.
