Woman gets a snake stuck inside her earlobe

Ashley Glawe ended up in the emergency room after her pet snake got stuck in a rather peculiar place.
Glawe, who is from Oregon, claims that she had been playing with her pet ball python 'Bart' when the adventurous reptile slithered up to her ear and poked his head through her stretched earlobe.

The snake quickly managed to get itself hopelessly stuck with Glawe unable to free him.

"It all happened so fast that before I even knew what was going on it was already too late," she said.

Photographs taken in the emergency room of her bizarre predicament soon went viral on social media and have since been viewed tens of thousands of times.

Fortunately though, with the help of a small incision, some Vaseline and a bit of perseverance, doctors were eventually able to free the snake from her ear.

Myself being a patron of the alternative scene and with multiple piercings myself, I'm still perplexed as to the fascination with earlobe stretching which I feel is an all around bad idea, this now being another reason: Because animals can get caught in them.

Very interesting (and somewhat scary) article Merc, Thanks. I had no idea Burmese pythons had established such a large breeding population in Florida. Their estimated numbers are mind-blowing and I'm not at all comfortable knowing these snakes are making (and breeding) their way up north.

this x1000. and just speaking in general, a pet should never be a novelty. a pet is a living, feeling animal that deserves understanding and respect. far too many people cause far too much harm because of ignorance.

Well, uh, sorry, a snake does not have "feelings" in an emotional sense, pet or not. Their expression of comfort is nothing more than a perception of "non-threat" Nothing at all to do with emotional feelings, an aspect of the brain only occurring in higher-order species.

When being edgy goes too far.

that's not what i was talking about, but maybe that's my fault for word choice. my point was, to put it simply: don't treat living things like toys.

Are you speaking about reptiles (I have never lived with one, so not sure about their "feelings")  or all animals, not human?
