A man found a python who must have slithered up the drain chilling in his toilet at 6am.
The family quickly called up Stewart Lalor from Brisbane Snake Catchers in Australia, who raced to catch the huge reptile. .
Lalor told the Courier Mail: “I’ve had jobs in the past where I’ve had hands in the toilet for half an hour.“This guy half took himself out (of the water) for me which was unusual. I think he was curious to see what was going on.” .
Lalor managed to grab the python easily and take him back outside where he belonged.Snakes regularly make their way through house pipes — especially in older homes where the pipes typically sit outside.
Offering advice to families who might find a snake in their toilet, Lalor said the worst thing to do was press the flush and push the snake further down the pipe.
