'Cheeky' snake bites embarrassed woman as she sits on toilet
A woman made an embarrassed phone call to the snake catchers after a python bit her on the bottom ‘mid-stream’ while she sat on the toilet without looking.
Snake Catcher Brisbane described how the woman sat down on the toilet without looking, then jumped with a fright to realise she was not alone.
“‘Mid-stream’, she felt something bite her bottom! As you can imagine, she jumped up quite quickly,” the snake catchers wrote of the “cheeky visitor” to a Capel Hill home on Tuesday.
Apparently the woman was doing her business with the lights off and initially thought it was a frog, but realised the small critters don’t have sharp teeth.
The non-venomous carpet python was spooked by the woman sitting down above it and simply “lashed out in fear”, according to the reptile experts.
“Our snake catcher arrived promptly, with first-aid in hand, so that the customer could clean herself up and get some antiseptic spray on the few small puncture marks left by the snake.
“Fortunately for us, the customer remained calm and remembered not to flush the toilet, as flushing could cause the snake to retreat down into the pipes again,” they wrote, sharing the picture on Facebook.
The snake was released near a creek so it could continue its soak and the woman was commended for handling the situation “like an absolute champ” and having a sense of humour about the cheeky encounter.
She told the catcher she has learned her lesson and from now on she would always go to the loo with the lights on, and check the bowl before sitting down.
What to do if you find a snake in the loo
While it was the first time Snake Catcher Brisbane responded to a bite on the bum, the reptile experts say finding snakes in toilets was quite a regular occurrence.
“If you find a carpet python in your toilet, don’t poke and prod it, don’t continue to flush the toilet,” they urged.
“If you do these things it increases the chances of us not being able to access the snake if it retreats further into the pipe.
“Put the lid down, secure it, and call a snake catcher.”

Man calls police after wife refuses to split the bill at Chinese restaurant
A Sydney couple’s weekday lunch date has taken a bizarre twist after they received the bill for their “succulent Chinese meal”.
Shortly before midday on Tuesday, police received a call from the seemingly fed up husband complaining that his wife was refusing to split the bill.
North Shore Police Area Command attended the Chinese seafood restaurant in Chatswood after the man said he wanted to see his wife cover her portion of the bill.
“Police spoke with the man, who phoned triple zero to alert police to the dispute, and advised him that triple zero is for emergency situations where a life is in danger, a crime is taking place, or in time critical situations,” they wrote in a statement.
They said they are unsure of who eventually paid for the “succulent” Chinese meal – a reference to an iconic viral Australia video involving Paul Charles Dozsa.
Dozsa, a former chess champion, was arrested after running from the bills at dozens of Sydney restaurants in the 1980s.
As several police officers struggled to escort him into the back of a car in front of stunned bystanders, he delivered a now infamous speech.
“Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest,” Mr Dozsa shouted.
“What is the charge? Eating a meal? A succulent Chinese meal?”

Mirror's reflection captures sinister creature hiding in bathroom
Homeowners spotted a sinister figure hiding in their bathroom in the early hours of the morning after hearing strange sounds.

Snake emerges from kitchen sink terrifying Adelaide resident
A video shows how snakes can appear anywhere with an Adelaide resident finding an eastern brown emerging from his kitchen sink.
Snake catchers Adelaide were called out to a property in Coromandel Valley, in the city’s southeast, after the resident found the venomous snake’s head popping out of the drain.
“An interesting situation to say the least!” the snake catcher wrote on Facebook.
Video shows the brown snake peeking out the drain after Cory started tapping on the pipes to coax it out.
But the snake appears to prefer to stay in the pipe and the catcher is forced to remove the entire grid and take it outside.
After removing each section of the pipe, Cory then manages to hook the eastern brown and get it into a bag to relocate.
“It must have come up through the breather of the septic system possibly,” the catcher said.

Police respond to bizarre intruder inside woman's home
When sceptical police officers responded to reports of an unusual intruder in a woman’s basement, they quickly realised she wasn’t horsing around.
Inver Grove Heights police arrived at the resident’s home in Minneapolis, US, on Friday night to find a pale-colored horse walking through various rooms as officers watched through windows from the outside.
Bizarre bodycam footage shows the audacious intruder trotting around inside.
Police Sergeant Adam Wiederhoeft revealed the investigation is ongoing and it isn’t clear how the horse got into the house, but that the animal’s owner came by to remove it.
“No horses or officers were hurt in this incident,” a tongue-in-cheek message on the police department’s Facebook page read.
“Never a dull moment in IGH!”

Prince Philip's crash victim says roads are 'safer' after he gives up licence
Prince Philip’s car crash victim Emma Fairweather has claimed the “roads will be safer now” after the Duke of Edinburgh decided to give up his driver’s license.
Her comments comes after Buckingham Palace revealed that the 97-year-old has chosen to surrender his license just weeks after his scary crash into Emma’s car – which left her with a broken wrist.
“After careful consideration, the Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving licence,” a statement from Buckingham Palace said.
He surrendered his licence on Saturday, a spokeswoman added to enquiring press.
After the announcement, mum-of-two Emma told the Sunday Mirror: “He’s making the most sensible decision he can.
“It’s a shame he didn’t make it a bit sooner but it’s the right thing to do.
“Undoubtedly the roads will be safer now. It won’t have been easy for him to make as it is a loss of independence. But he can work around it.”
She said she had done “nothing but cry” this week after having an operation to screw a metal plate into her arm.
The Duke of Edinburgh has surrendered his driving licence after being involved in a crash and then being spotted behind the wheel without a seatbelt.
He apologised for his part in an accident on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk when his Land Rover Freelander collided with another car on January 17, leaving two women needing hospital treatment.
But 48 hours after the crash he was pictured driving without a seatbelt, prompting criticism.
