Snake rescued after swallowing ‘almost half’ of own body

这条蛇吞下了自己“几乎一半”的身体后获救

A snake in Pennsylvania was caught performing the circle of life — on itself.

在宾夕法尼亚州,一条蛇在表演“生命之环”时被抓。

Jesse Rothacker, of Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary in Elm, said he walked in on a kingsnake at the facility after it had “swallowed almost half of his body” on Friday.

被遗忘的朋友、榆树爬行动物保护区的杰西·罗斯切克说,上周五,一条金蛇“几乎吞噬了他的一半身体”,他在那里偶然发现了这条金蛇。

Rothacker posted a video to the sanctuary’s Facebook page, saying that kingsnakes often prey on other snakes, including venomous copperheads and rattlesnakes. He explained that the reptile ended up in such dire straits after mistaking its bottom half for another snake.

Rothacker在该保护区的Facebook页面上发布了一段视频,称王蛇经常捕食其他蛇,包括有毒的铜头蛇和响尾蛇。他解释说,这只爬行动物误把下半身当成了另一条蛇,结果陷入了如此可怕的境地。

这条蛇差点儿把自己吃了

“They will sometimes see their own tail, they’ll think it’s a snake, they’ll take a bite out of it and they’ll realize they’ve bit themselves,” Rothacker said. “They don’t usually swallow themselves. But today, we’re going to see a kingsnake that, I don’t know, might not have done very well on the SATs.”

“他妈有时会看到自己的尾巴,然后把它当作是另一条蛇,咬一口之后,它们会意识到咬的是自己。”Rothacker说。“它们通常不会吞下自己,但今天,我们看到了一条王蛇,我不知道,它可能在sat考试中表现得不是很好。”

Rothacker first tried to get the snake to release itself by tapping it on its nose, which can make the serpents nervous and unhinge their jaws.

“解救者”首先试图通过轻拍蛇鼻子让它放开自己,拍蛇鼻子会让蛇感到紧张,促使它们的下颚张开。

When the kingsnake refused to let go, Rothacker was forced to use his fingernail to pry the fangs loose and pull the snake from its own mouth.

当王蛇拒绝放手时,罗萨克不得已用指甲把毒牙撬松,并把蛇从自己的嘴里拔了出来。

Rothacker said the snake was normally a very good eater, assuring viewers he regularly fed the reptile.

罗斯切克说,这条蛇通常是一个很好的食客,并向观众保证,他经常喂这种爬行动物。

The sanctuary later shared on Facebook that the kingsnake was chowing down on a real meal: “miceicles,” posting of photo of what appeared to be a frozen mouse clasped in the hungry serpent’s jaws.

这个保护区后来在facebook上分享到,王蛇正狼吞虎咽地吃一顿真正的饭:“麦凯勒斯”,还上传了一张照片,照片上有一只冻死的老鼠卡在饥饿的蛇的下巴上。

Rothacker said the snake was being adopted Sunday.

罗萨克说这条蛇周日被领养了。
