A woman who took a plunger to her blocked toilet recently pulled out something even more terrifying than the standard blockage material.
It turned out that a 5ft long boa constrictor was sitting in the toilet at Stephanie Lacsa’s office in San Diego, which she only discovered when it came slithering out following her plunging.
‘I thought my eyes were deceiving me, but as soon as I saw the flicker of its tongue, I definitely knew what it was, in fact, a large snake heading straight towards me,’ she said.
Ms Lacsa, who founded Vertical PR and Marketing in the city, said she instantly did the only logical thing and ‘ran out of the bathroom screaming louder than I’d like to admit and taped the door shut’.
San Diego Animal Control were called who quickly caught the massive snake and took it to a vet.

Holly Wells, who is an employee at the now snake-free company said: ‘The snake scared the living daylights out of us, but we truly hope he gets the care he needs and can be placed in a good home.’
She also commented that she hopes the snake’s new owners ‘know how to keep their toilet seat lids down’.
Boa constrictors are not poisonous, however they can easily kill humans by wrapping their body around their victims and crushing them to death.
