Missing Python Slithers Out of Dutch Toilet Bowl

From http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp..._nm/snake_dc_1

Missing Python Slithers Out of Dutch Toilet Bowl
Fri Jul 11, 9:55 AM ET


AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A pet python missing over the last two months made its reappearance by scaring a Dutch woman when it slithered out of her toilet bowl.

The constrictor snake, which kills its prey by coiling around it and squeezing, had been on the loose for more than two months after breaking out of its terrarium in a town near the port city of Rotterdam, Dutch news agency ANP said on Thursday.

As police and vets came to catch the two-meter long fugitive python, it slid under a bathtub that they had to demolish to capture it.


The snake was returned to its owner, but local residents were unhappy to hear the owner admit that a second pet python, this one almost one-meter long, had also escaped and was still on the loose

I saw some T.V. show not long back on discovery I believe it was their snake week. Reticulateds came up as a topic, and they had a reinactment of a woman sitting in a bamboo shed above a hole (for a toilet) and a retic came up the hole and killed her. Of course, just a reinactment, they never said if it was a true story or not.... Would definatly ward me away from going to the washroom in any outhouse overseas haha..

THAT HAPPENED TO THIS GUY i USED TO KNOW, he lived in an appartment building and the snake appeared 2 or 3 floors down , and an old lagy bashed it to death with a frying pan.. (apparently he heard the story while riding the elevator with 2 older ladies.)
the same guy had a monitor jump off the 15th floor balcony, and live for a while in a nearby forest, soon to get killed by the highway....

irrisponsibility.. and inevitability.

While this is quite funny, it makes you wonder at the responsibility of the owners. BUT! I still wish a Burmese or retic would pop its head up while Im on the loo....If it could stand the smell.

Hmmm... You'd think the lady would have seen the snake before she sat down. But you know... mabye its just me who does that. The python BROKE out of its terrarium? Is that common or was it just a bad cage? Yea it would be neat to have a snake in your toilet.... in Australia I hear they often have frogs swimming in theirs. That would be nice

Any spider could live under the toilet, but I think itís the Funnel Web you are thinking about.
