Boa Constrictor

This boa was brought straight down to the surgery after its owner had noticed that as well as her normal feed, the plastic wrapping which the item had been placed upon was also missing. We have an endoscope at the practice which allows us to pass a tube into the snakes stomach and pass tiny grabbers to grasp the foreign body and slowly use gentle traction to remove it. It took a few goes but we were amazed at what we pulled out. The boa made a full recovery.
