A Portland, Oregon woman and her pet snake are okay after a frightening ordeal.

"It's unbelievable to me," says Ashley Glawe.

Glawe was trying to take selfies with her ball python, Bart, when he did something he has never done before. He slithered into the hole in Glawe's earlobe and got stuck.

"I kind of went into shock," she says. "I started shaking."

Glawe called for help. Firefighters rushed over to the house, but they could not help her. She then went to the emergency room. Staff numbed her ear and got to work.
 
"I guess they used some string and ran it between my ear and the snake and stretched my ear out more and pulled him back through," she described.

Glawe shared her story on Facebook and it has since gone viral.
