Worst Nightmare Realized of the Day: When a seven-year-old girl in Hanover, Germany, lifted the lid of the toilet in her house, the last thing in the world she expected to find was a seven-foot-long boa constrictor staring back at her. But that’s precisely what she found.

The slithering sewer-dweller eventually made a U-turn down the S-bend, but not before police managed to snap a photo of the literal plumber’s snake.

A wildlife expert, offering a possible explanation, said “[p]eople buy these snakes when they are young and they grow very large very quickly and scare the life out of their owners who try to flush them down the lavatory or release them into the drains.”
