Python's Apple a day not enough to keep vet away

Image via http://www.smh.com.auA PET python discovered it had bad taste in music after swallowing a pair of its owner’s earphones, possibly confusing them with small eggs.

It might look like an advertisement for the Apple iPod, but the mishap meant the 84-gram children’s python, named Pythagoras, had to have the white rubber and plastic removed by a vet.

The 60-centimetre snake tried the new dish after wrapping itself around the cords when out of the cage about seven weeks ago.

Owner Luke Nydam decided that since Pythagoras had just eaten dinner he would put it back in the cage and get the earphones, with remote control attached, later.

When Mr Nydam, who lives at Rhodes in Sydney’s west, returned home from work the next day the earphones were gone and there were two distinct lumps in the snake.
