the Vets have removed the 511 ticks from a pytonslange, who was found by a team slangefangere in Queensland, Australia.
It tells hose prisoners Tony Harrison for the BBC.
the Prisoners found the particular snake in a swimming pool in a backyard, where they had been called out, because it was thought the snake was sick.
He speculates that the snake, which now has been given the name of Nike, had tried to drown the many ticks in the pool.
- the Whole of its head was raised, and it was completely overwhelmed by flåterne, who begat him, says Tony Harrison. He tells that it felt like to ’keep a bag of glass beads’ to remove pytonslangen.
According to professor Bryan Fry from the University, as the BBC also have spoken with, it is not uncommon for ticks and parasites of snakes in the free. But such a large number of ticks suggests that the snake had a disease which may be caused by the extreme heat and drought right now rampant in Australia.
I doubt that it would have survived if it had not been taken and had been treated, says Bryan Fry.
Tony Harrison put in goes up an image of Nike on Facebook page Gold Coast and Brisbane Snake Catcher.
Since he has several times updated the page with news about the treatment. In the past we have heard that the snake has gotten much better after being treated for an infection.
