(Newser) – A Taiwanese man had an unpleasant encounter with a snake that nipped him on his penis as he sat on his toilet, reports Reuters. He "reacted instinctively and jumped up" when he felt a sharp pain and spotted "the big snake," reports the China Times. He's in the hospital with minor injuries until the risk of infection passes. "A snake's mouth isn't always clean," explains the hospital director.
