What would you do if you went to use the restroom at work, opened the lid of the toilet, and found a 5 1/2-foot snake staring up at you?
That’s exactly what happened to one San Diego woman on Tuesday. The picture above is of the actual snake.
The 5-foot, 6-inch Colombian rainbow boa was retrieved from the business’s bathroom, said Animal Services Deputy Director Dan DeSousa, but how it got there is still a mystery.
An employee at the firm said she had noticed the toilet water level was higher than usual in their restroom. She said after she began to plunge it, the snake slithered out.
The door to the bathroom was closed and sealed with tape when an animal control officer arrived. The snake, which was on the floor at that point, was retrieved and transported to the Gaines Street animal care facility to be examined.
DeSousa said he was uncertain if a snake could survive in a sewage system.
The office would have to give us some extra PTO or something…because there’s no way.
