Los veterinarios de un hospital para animales en Australia compartieron las imágenes de la intervención a una serpiente pitón a la que extrajeron de sus intestinos una toalla de playa al completo.

El Small Animal Specialist Hospital de Sydney atendió a una serpiente pitón de 18 años, apodada como Monty Python en honor al grupo de cómicos británico, que fue trasladada al hospital por una familia que la encontró agonizando. Los especialistas descubrieron que en su interior tenía enrollada una toalla de grandes dimensiones.

Tras extraerle la prenda, el reptil fue  puesto en libertad. “Hubo risas y felicidad. Estamos encantados de anunciar que tanto la serpiente como la toalla vivirán para contarlo”, dijeron los médicos que atendieron a la animal.

‼️Monty Python and The Missing Beach Towel ‼️ We see all kinds of interesting cases here at 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 3 m long, who presented to Dr Olivia Clarke at our Avian and Exotics Department at @sash_vets as she was seen eating an entire beach towel whole the night before! Monty was anaesthetised and radiographs were taken to confirm the location of the start of the towel which was approximately 1m from the head and we marked this location with tape. A flexible endoscope was placed down Monty’s gastrointestinal tract, which allowed us to visualise the end of the towel sitting 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 are 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!
