Another Snake In The Toilet Story

A 73-year-old Polish pensioner was shocked to find a 6.5-foot-long anaconda peering up out of her toilet bowl on Monday in her flat in Wroclaw, south-west Poland, local police said.

"After she raised the lid of the toilet seat, the lady saw a huge snake that wanted to slither out of the toilet bowl. She immediately slammed down the toilet lid and called us," Pawel Petrykowski, a Wroclaw police spokesman said. "She was certainly very frightened but managed to keep her wits about her," he said. After arriving on the scene, police and an employee from the local zoo managed to catch the reptile, which is native to South America.

"It must have somehow got into the toilet bowl via the plumbing pipes," Mr Petrykowski said. While the anaconda was taken to the zoo, police launched an investigation aimed at identifying its owner.
