A 1.8 meter black - headed python has been found in a toilet bowl on the 10th floor of a Darwin apartment block.Would certainly scare you?!? I would die. I would just die. You'd all be attending a funeral. Of course it would be a double funeral because my last ounce of life would have been spent killing the snake.
It is believed the snake had been living in the plumbing of the building for some time.
Reptile wrangler Chris Peberdy rescued it after the tenants of the Cullen Bay apartment got the shock of their lives when going to the bathroom, the Northern Territory News reported.
"When I saw it I was pretty shocked," Mr Peberdy said.
"It's one thing in the Territory to have a green frog in the toilet ... but not a six-foot python.''
"It would certainly scare you if it came up from the depths of the toilet.''
Mr Peberdy said there were no windows or other spaces through which the snake - which is "as thick as someone's wrist'' - could have got in.
"There is no possible other way it could have got there than through the toilet,'' Mr Peberdy said.
Mr Peberdy said the python, which is not poisonous, was likely to be a runaway pet that had travelled through the pipes after escaping a neighbour's home.
HA! I say to you all! HA! and double HA! Audrey - commenting on my last evil ophidians post over at Kevin and Patrick - thought she was being funny when she mentioned snakes and toilets; and you all laughed at me - I know you did - but the next time you go into your bathroom you'll look... you know you will.
