Huge Snakes Taking Over Toilets In Australian Homes

Two households in Australia have reported spotting pythons in their toilets.

Imagine waking up during the wee hours of the night to take a piss when you suddenly discover you’ve got a large python on the toilet bowl. I assume you’d be pretty startled, right? You’d either think you were dreaming or probably being pranked.

Well, two households from Townsville, Australia have recently experienced that but no, it was neither a dream nor a prank.

In fact, they had to call Elliot Budd, a Queensland-based snake catcher, for help.

Over the course of two weeks, he received two phone calls from clients who needed his service. In both cases, he had to remove snakes that have curled up on toilets.

Snake catcher Elliot Budd received not 1 but 2 snake-in-a-toilet cases.

In an interview with CNN, Budd shared:

“The first snake was 3 meters long (9.8 feet) and the second one was 2.4 meters (7.8 feet).”

Describing the first experience, he said:

“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 also said it took him a bit before he was able to successfully pull the snake out since it had a solid grip on the toilet’s S-bend.

One of the snakes was almost 8 feet in length while the other measured almost 10 feet.

Oddly, he received another call several days after the first incident:

According to him:

“It was on the 12th. That one the lady told me on the phone that it was in the toilet. At first, I thought maybe somebody was just having a joke after the first one. I didn’t think I’d see two of them in the toilet. The lady very much wanted to get it out.”

Asked for an explanation behind these strange incidents, Budd said it probably has to do with the dry season that the country is experiencing.

“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. 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.”

So yes, these scary pythons are non-venomous but as Budd noted, it’s still best to “leave them alone” if you ever encounter one – and hopefully not in your toilet!

Dad Pulls Out A Little Girl’s Loose Tooth Using Drone

In defense of what they did, the family said that the tooth was already very loose before they let a drone pull it out.

As technology continues to grow more and more mainstream, it becomes part and parcel of our daily lives. We’re the gadget generation—we can’t really leave our house without a mobile clasped in our hand. Drones have also helped us take shooting videos into next level, allowing us to pan through areas and angles that human limitation cannot reach. Today, a young girl used a drone to pull out her teeth, and she didn’t cry at all.

In the olden days, there are three ways that kids pull their lose teeth. The first one is to attach our tooth on a string tied in a doorknob and let another person open the door and pull our tooth. Others just let it go off naturally using their tongues. Everyone’s safest bet is go to the dentist, but this will cost us more. And, honestly, this kills the fun in childhood.

Is it safe?
