This python curled up in a toilet bowl in a house in Klang, Malaysia, gave resident Kamarunesa Mohd Kassim, 40, a fright on Monday. "The snake was quite big. I immediately closed the bowl lid with a log and put a pail on top of it," she told Malaysian news portal Kosmo. She said she screamed when she saw it and believed it entered via a septic tank. "Five firemen were sent and they took 25 minutes to catch the python," Selangor Fire and Rescue Department assistant operations director Mohd Sani Harul was quoted by Kosmo as saying.
