Greedy snake gets stuck in grate
10:12 11 August 2014
A vet has to come to the rescue of a gluttonous grass snake that got stuck in a drain grate after gorging on a frog.
Sidmouth Veterinary Practice surgeon Richard Jones tended to the reptile, lubricating and gently manipulating it to free it unharmed.
And an hour later it promptly regurgitated its meal – a frog that fared less well.
Richard said it was one of the more unusual cases he has had to deal with since the surgery opened last month.
