Battery stuck in K20D

Hi. I did a VERY stupid thing. In my haste to change the battery in my K20D, I accidentally put one of my Nikon batteries in. The physical size is the same, so it went in okay. However, now the battery is stuck and I cannot get it out. Any advice on how to remove it (without having to take it into a shop)?

I would hold down the battery release clip and then try to shake the camera until the battery comes out far enough that you can get a hold of it.
