Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 in Queensland, Australia shared a freaky photo of a five-foot venomous brown snake coiled up around a toilet.
The post said a staff member at a local business sat down on the toilet to use the restroom when the snake let out a loud hiss, scaring the staff member off the toilet seat.
“Sitting down on the toilet and you hear a hissssss! Wowzas, this is crazy,” Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 wrote on Facebook.
It was at the start of the staff member’s shift and they immediately called Snake Catchers to come handle the situation. Snake Catchers said they responded as soon as possible and drove straight there to capture the reptile.
They wrote on Facebook, “Just shows that snakes want nothing to do with you, they also would prefer not to watch you go to the toilet!”
Sunshine Coast Snake Catcher Stuart McKenzie took the snake off the property and relocated it to a place where it can live out the rest of its life in its natural habitat. He said the snake was glad to be released.
McKenzie told NCA NewsWire, “I’d say the brown snake in this situation just found a good spot hiding behind the toilet and felt sheltered and safe behind there. [The worker] heard a hissing sound when he sat down and probably got the surprise of his life when he turned around and saw that brown snake. If it was me in that situation I’d jump as well.”
