A carpet python from Kyogle, Australia, is recovering at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital after swallowing two golf balls.
Currumbin vet Andrew Hill said some people put balls in nests to trick their chickens into thinking their eggs had not been taken.
He said it’s not the first time a snake had been tricked too.
“It’s not unprecedented,” he said.
“We saw another python with four golf balls back in 2008, so we haven’t quite broken our personal record yet.”
The snake was taken to the hospital on Sunday and operated on Wednesday.
Mr Hill said Callaway weighed just under two kilograms and measured 1.5 metres long.
“So he’s not as wide as a golfball and they stuck out fairly well when he arrived,” he said.
