Look In The Toilet, Do You See A Snake? Pt 2

I had a nightmare like this once...

(Source: BBC)
A 10ft (3m) snake thought to have been living in sewage pipes in a block of flats for three months has been caught on a bathroom floor.
The boa constrictor, named Keith, is thought to have been abandoned after the resident was evicted owing £5,500 in rent to his landlord.

It has been slithering out of toilet bowls thoughout the flats in Manchester since August.

...The creature has been spotted on several occasions and homeowners have put bricks on toilet seats in a bid to keep the beast from popping out of the pan.

Previous sightings of the animal were treated with scepticism but firefighters were called to the block of flats on Clyde Road, West Didsbury, Manchester after it confronted a resident going to the toilet in the middle of the night.


...confronted a resident going to the toilet in the middle of the night...hmm, that's a really nice way to put what I'm sure was a horrific experience. You know: middle of the night, half asleep, going to the bathroom, A GIANT SNAKE POPS OUT OF THE TOILET.

Or maybe in England even the snakes are well-mannered too? I say my dear chap, if you don't move out of the way I'm going to have a go at biting your arse.

Despite using hi-tech fibre optic equipment to check sewage pipes, no trace of the snake was found.

However a resident who came face-to-face with the snake - thought to be female - on his bathroom floor managed to trap it by coaxing it into a bucket.

A spokesman for the Royal Society for the Protection of Animals (RSPCA) said it was not uncommon for snakes to be found in household sewage pipes.

RSPCA regional exotic animals co-ordinator Jimmy Ratcliff said: "It would have no problem travelling up and down the waste pipe and has probably been eating rats from the sewer."


Hey what does he mean by it's not uncommon for snakes to be found in household sewage pipes? There must be a lot of constipated people over there.
