A 1.8 meter (nearly six feet) python has been found in a toilet bowl in a highrise apartment in Australia's northern tropical city of Darwin, media reported on Friday.Mmm. Poopy python!
The Northern Territory News said the black-headed python was found in a 10th floor toilet.
Reptile catcher Chris Peberdy told the newspaper the python, likely to be a runaway pet, had been traveling through the building's sewer pipes.
"When I saw it I was pretty shocked," he said. "There is no possible other way it could have got there than through the toilet. I had to give him a wash because he was wet and a bit smelly."
You know you've been blogging a long time when you've posted not one, not two, but three stories about snakes in toilets. And that none of the above are the worst found in a toilet story you've posted.
Btw, I'd like to congratulate Reuters News for correctly filing this story in their "Odd News" section.
