A 4-foot ball python slithered out of a toilet and bit a man from South Florida on his arm, according to Coral Springs police.
When the South Florida man lifted the toilet seat, a 4-foot non-venomous python slithered out of it and bit the man on his arm.
He was treated at the scene and is now fine, according to Coral Springs police spokesman Chris Swinson.
The snake was then taken to a veterinarian’s office by the Coral Springs Humane Society for a scale infection treatment.
It is still not known how the snake got into the apartment.
In April, a python entered a woman’s home in Thailand through her toilet and bit her while she was sleeping.
Kaew Sudsopha, 75, was sleeping when a python entered into her room in Bangkok, through her toilet.
Sudsopha woke up after feeling pain in her foot and woke up her son Nakorn, 44 who was sleeping next door.
When rescue workers arrived, they found the python on the toilet seat in the bathroom.
‘I thought I was having a nightmare. There was a sharp pain in my foot and I woke up. I turned on the torch and noticed something moving on the floor. That’s when I saw the snake’ Ms. Sudsopha said.
‘I said, ”Where did you come from?” and walked out as quickly as I could. I don’t know why the snake bit me, I was sleeping, not threatening it. Now I’m terrified to sleep in that room again.’
