Australian Python Stories

A carpet python mistakenly swallowed four golf balls that had been set in a hen's nest to encourage egg-laying. The farming couple took it to a vet. After recovering from surgery, the snake will be released into a sanctuary. (News source.)

Another python (probably a carpet) sunk its teeth into a Moreton Island tourist's ankle, wrapped around the leg and wouldn't release. Emergency personnel killed the snake and released the woman. (News source.)
