Woman finds python stuck in her toilet

It’s a bowl-a constrictor.

A UK woman realized every ophidiophobe’s worst nightmare after she went to use the bathroom and found a massive snake in the toilet, as seen in this skin-crawling clip.

”It scared the hell out of me,” Laura Tranter told Newsflare of the violating incident, which occurred at 5:30 a.m. Saturday.

“I woke up at half-past five in the morning to go to the toilet, and it was just there,” recounted the terrified Stourbridge native, who reportedly “nearly sat on the thing” without realizing.

She added, “Its head was just resting on the seat.”

The accompanying footage shows the massive 4-foot python coiled in the bowl like a sentient plumber’s snake.

Tranter initially thought she imagined the whole thing — presumably in part because pythons aren’t native to the UK. “I shut the toilet door and thought, have I really seen that, so I double-checked if it was real — but I really thought I was hallucinating,” she said.

Unfortunately, the local reptile rescue service didn’t open until 7 a.m., so the frightened woman showed up at her friend’s house and relayed her spine-tingling tale.

“She was so confused she asked if I’d been drinking,” lamented Tranter.

Laura Tranter was shocked to find a python in her toilet.

Thankfully, she enlisted a pair of herpetology buffs named Dave and Steve to help remove the reptilian inter-loo-per from her potty.

However, this was no mean feat as the snake had actually become trapped in the crapper, according to Tranter. Eventually, the freelance serpent wranglers managed to extract the snake by pouring soap down the toilet — presumably to lubricate the bowl — and then literally flushing the animal out.

It’s unknown how the python managed to infiltrate the plumbing. However, “Steve and Dan think that someone might have let it out after keeping it as a pet and deciding they didn’t want it, and it had got into the sewer somehow,” said Tranter.

“I still can’t get my head around it, I really can’t,” added the bewildered gal, who has since handed the reptile over to the reptile rescue service.

As horrifying as the scenario was, it could’ve been far worse. Last September, a Thai teen was hospitalized after a snake sank its fangs into his penis while he was on the throne.
