Some local vets performed an unusual surgery today on a 6-foot boa constrictor in Tampa.
Veterinarians say the snake accidentally swallowed an entire towel while eating a rat. After getting X-rays, medical personnel determined it would need surgery to save its life.
Doctors from BluePearl Veterinary Partners performed the complex surgery this afternoon.
The snake -- named Killer -- is expected to make a full recovery.
