Snake found in chicken coop confused golf balls for eggs

A rat snake in Georgia is alive thanks to a team of doctors at the Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island.

The center reports the grey rat snake was recently found in a chicken coop in north Georgia.

In its stomach were two golf balls that the snake surely thought were chicken eggs.

Veterinarians say they were able to cut the golf balls out of the snake with little complications but are monitoring the snake for any type of infection. The snake will be released when it has fully recovered.
