Woman's pet snake gets stuck in her earlobe

Warning: The post contains graphic language and a disturbing image.

Don't let your pet snake crawl into your earlobe.

This might seem like a no-brainer, but an Oregon woman unfortunately faced this scaly situation in January.

Ashley Glawe, who has since recovered, recalled the incident in a Facebook post:

The ball python, whose name is Bart, ended up inside Glawe's stretched earlobe purely by accident.

She was merely playing around with the reptile when it got a little curious. Then, she realized she couldn't get it out.

"BY FAR one of my #CRAZIEST life moments!" Glawe wrote in a Facebook post. "Went to the #EmergencyRoom because my #BallPython #Python #Snake decided to get #STUCK in my #Gauged earlobe!"

One of her friends informed commenters that doctors at Portland Adventist Hospital made a slight cut in Glawe's ear, then used Vaseline to help the snake wiggle out.

Glawe later commented that it hurt "a little" and the snake escaped totally unharmed.
