Are you missing a snake?
Seattle Police responded to a unique call on Friday afternoon. A family in Lake City reported their young daughter found a sizable snake in their toilet.
Officers responded to the apartment complex and worked with residents to remove the rogue snake. They contacted the Pacific Northwest Herpetological Society to take the snake until someone claims it.
Society officials say the snake appears to be a ball python, a non-venomous constrictor that is a popular pet among reptile fans.
Though rare, reports of snakes being discovered in toilets are not unheard of. A Kansas City, Kansas family found a ball python inside their toilet in 2015, and similar incidents have been reported in Australia, Thailand and elsewhere.
