Python Pit Stop: 12-ft Long Snake Slithers Into Texas Bathroom (PICTURE)

In terms of things you don’t want to ever see in your bathroom, this 12ft python is probably high up there.

The mammoth reptile was discovered attempting to slither into Veronica Rodriguez’s bathtub in her central Texas home last week, The Eagle reported.

The 50-year-old had been in the process of bathing her guinea pigs(!) and had just deposited the last one back in its outdoor cage when her cold-blooded visitor arrived.

Panicking, she slammed the bathroom door shut and called the police.

“When the officer showed up, he came with a brown paper sack,” she explained.

“I told him you’re going to need a bigger sack than that.”

The slippery interloper was eventually captured using a dustbin and later claimed by its owner who had reported it missing.

It’s likely the python slipped into the house as Rodriguez was transporting her guinea pigs back into their outdoor pens, the Associated Press notes.
