Hanna Python, World’s 1st Snake To Undergo Pioneering CAT Scan For Lungs Problem

Published

on

A python weighing a whopping ten stone has undergone a pioneering CAT scan for her lung problems.

Hanna the snake who is nearly 19 feet long had to be folded up to fit in the machine at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio.

She underwent the scan after suffering respiratory problems.

Zoo staff used the groundbreaking technology after noting she had swelling on her face and there was concern that it might be an early indication of infection.

The swollen area noted by the animal care team was confirmed by the veterinary team to be glandular tissue.

‘Hanna will be on antibiotics for two weeks to clear the infection.’

The zoo is one of just six in the U.S. with computerised axial tomography (CAT)technology on site.

They say the CAT scanner will allow vets to understand the interior of any animal including animal with a hard exterior like a shell.

China to kill 1,332 pigs following fresh outbreak of swine fever

Published

on

Authorities in China’s Zhejiang province said it will kill 1,332 hogs after an African swine fever outbreak was reported in the city of Yueqing, the city government said in a post on its official Weibo account on Thursday.

 

Already, authorities have sealed off an area within 3 km (1.8 miles) from the pig farming community where the deadly disease was found, according to the statement. The local government has also banned the movement of animals that can be easily infected inside and outside the affected area, and closed some live hog trading markets and slaughterhouses following the outbreak, the statement said.

 

The latest cull will bring the total number of pigs deliberately killed to prevent African swine fever to over 25,000 in an effort to control the spread of the highly contagious disease, which was first reported in the city of Shenyang in the northeastern province of Liaoning just three weeks ago.

Graphic content: Baby born with two heads survives after one of them containing part of its brain is amputated (Photos)

Published

on

A Syrian baby born with two heads is lucky to be alive after a successful operation to amputate his second head.

Abdullatif Shekrak was born with part of his brain protruding from his head but managed to escape death after a risky operation to close the opening.

He was diagnosed with encephalocele, which is estimated to strike around one in 12,000 babies, in the womb.

The condition arises when a baby’s skull doesn’t close properly, causing a sac-like protrusion of the brain and its covering membranes through an opening in the skull.

Abdullatif was left with a mammoth 2.2lbs (1kg) mass, which appeared to look like he had a second head.

Surgeons were forced to operate on him when he was just three days old, but the complex procedure to push his brain back in proved successful.

Abdullatif’s mother Sana Hilel, of Aleppo, decided to cross the Turkish border to have her seventh child by C-section.

The 37-year-old made the 60-mile (97km) journey across war-torn Syria to Mustafa Kemal University Hospital in Antakya.

Facing almost certain death, Abdullatif was rushed to Iskenderun Developmental Hospital on the Mediterranean coast.
