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.

Extraen dunha serpe en catividade unha toalla de praia

Unha clínica australiana difunde un peculiar caso despois de que a dona do réptil a vira tragando a toalla

Os traballadores do SASH, unha clínica veterinaria de Sydney (Australia) especializada en pequenos animais, difundiron nas redes un sorprendente vídeo no que se ve como extraen dunha serpe pitón de tres metros de lonxitude unha toalla de praia.

As imaxes comezaron a percorrer as redes polo curioso que resulta o caso. “Vemos todo tipo de casos interesantes, pero non todos os días é algo tan extraordinario coma isto”, comentaron desde o SASH. A serpe, que vivía en catividade, foi levada á clínica pola súa propietaria, que viu como o animal engulía a toalla.

Para extraer a peza, o equipo veterinario anestesiou ao animal e incluíron unha cámara na ferramenta coa que sacaron a toalla para localizala no interior do corpo. Aquí podes ver a secuencia completa.
