Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 / Facebook
Stuart McKenzie from Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 shared a video on their Facebook page of a massive snake being removed from a lady’s bathroom toilet paper basket.
“Just received a call for a large carpet python that’s actually gone into a family’s bathroom, which isn’t good. There’s no way it can easily get out, so they need us to come out and get it back outside so the family can have a shower and go to the toilet,” Stuart said on Facebook, while driving over to the lady’s home.
As he walked through her house, the lady led him right to the bathroom door that was securely closed so that the snake couldn’t get out and go after her pets. She tells him to go on in and he begins looking for the snake.
The lady told Newsweek, “I came in and went to the toilet, and then I went and washed my hands at the sink there and then I walked out and my daughter walked in. She just came out screaming real fast and said ‘it’s right over there.'”
Stuart found the snake in a basket sitting on top of the washer and dryer units. It was a fairly large python, easily six to seven feet in length. The two laughed about the python and Stuart effortlessly caught the snake using a snake pole and a catching bag.
Stuart explained to Newsweek, “We regularly get calls for snakes turning up in strange places as usually snakes are trying to hide or keep warm which means they end up doing that in some weird places.”
To many people’s relief, Stuart took the snake outside and released it back into the woods so it could live out the rest of its life in peace and the lady could use her restroom.
