Snake Survives Week in Car Fan

Noel Padgham of Yarrawonga, Australia wondered what was making that awful noise in her car. After a week of hearing it, she took the car for a check. Mechanics suspected something was stuck in the air conditioning fan.
Air-conditioning mechanic Kit Carson, 59, got in the car expecting to find the usual piece of paper - they tend to fall down the back of the glove box - but instead found a one-metre carpet python.

"Him and I both got a jump," he said.

"He'd been spinning around like a bloody washing machine, but the end of his tail must have been hanging out - it was all feathered and ratty."

The snake was taken to an animal hospital, where five centimeters of his tail had to be amputated, but he is expected to make an otherwise full recovery. Link -via Arbroath

Unfortunately you'd get to a bit of snake which would have some necessary bits. A colon is more or less the same along its entire length, so if you halve it, it's just half as efficient (which doesn't usually make a huge difference, so long as your diet is kept in check).

A snake, on the other hand, has organs. Sure, they're long and thin...but they're still in there. It would be just like a long, thin person. At some point, cutting away at a person from the bottom up is going to remove something necessary.
