(Newser) – A Bronx man couldn't use his toilet last night because the seat was already occupied—by a monster snake. The frightened man called the cops, saying, "There's a giant snake on my toilet." Animal handlers reported find that the reptile was a nonvenomous corn snake, albeit one of impressive size, the New York Daily News reports. The snake's unwitting host surmised that it had come up through the plumbing, creeping out the neighbors. "We've got enough problems here with bugs and mice," one said.

"Look, anytime you walk into your bathroom and find a big snake staring you in the eye, it's going to spook you," one cop said.
