A massive deadly python had to be pulled out of a toilet after climbing through the system and biting a man on the bum.
It was the second similar worrying attack reported in Southeast Asia in just a few days.
Emergency services were called after the unsuspecting Somchai, 45, felt something bite – and soon saw the snake’s head peeking out of the bowl.
It happened in the Samut Prakan province of central Thailand before the 8 foot long reptile tried to escape.
Fearing a future re-attack, the man tried to catch the snake before quickly asking for assistance.
He said, “I sat down and felt something push against my bum.
“So I looked down and saw the snake.”
Video footage shows the volunteer Kaitisak Meesaeng crawling towards the snake, whose head bumps over the edge.
The rescue team observed the snake’s behavior and “stared at it for a few minutes” before the reptile lifted its head from the toilet seat.
“This could have been a lot worse since pythons are aggressive and bite people,” Meesaeng said. “It has happened before. We also had to be careful not to lose the snake, as the resident did not want it to live in his pipes.”
But in Malaysia there was an even bigger one at large.
Just two days later, emergency services captured a 10-foot-long python from a toilet bowl in Iskandar Puteri in the Malaysian state of Johor.
Seven firefighters were dispatched to the scene and successfully captured the large reptile before it was released into the wild.
Fire chief Khairi Zainudin said: “The python was successfully caught with a snake rod and has since been released a long way from the residential area.
“Snakes usually come out during this hot season to look for cool, wet spots.”
