WHAT ARE THESE SNAKES LOOKING FOR?
Can you imagine going to the bathroom to help yourself, only for you to finding a huge python curled up inside the toilet bowl, what would you do? Shout, scream severally……hmm. That happened not just once but twice in the Australian city of Townsville this month.
A young man by name Elliot Budd, who works as a snake catcher in the northeastern city in Queensland, received two calls in the past two weeks to remove snakes that had snuck their way into people’s toilets.
“The first snake was 3 meters long (9.8 feet) and the second one was 2.4 meters (7.8 feet),” he told CNN over the phone.
“The first one I got, the house was being renovated so it was a few tradesmen working there that came across it. I was definitely a bit surprised when it was in the toilet,” Budd said.
It was a particularly tricky case to remove as the snake had a firm grip on the toilet’s S-bend, he said. Budd finally got it out after unbolting the toilet.
Budd believe it’s the dry spell the region is experiencing right now that’s driving the animals to hide out in people’s toilets.
“It just comes down to the fact that it’s really dry right now and they’re looking for water and it is mating season right now,” he said.
“They are using a lot more energy than they normally would so they need more water. They’re non-venomous these snakes. They aren’t considered dangerous. They’re not something to fear but it’s best if you come across them to leave them alone.”
