Amsterdam woman finds snake in toilet
A woman living in Central Amsterdam got the shock of her life on Wednesday morning when she lifted the lif of the toilet in her home, to find a 50cm brown and orange snake, The Parool reports.
The snake, which was still in the toilet after she returned from alerting the police, is thought to be a corn snake, which is not poisonous. Cornsnakes are common in the US and it is a complete mystery how it ended up in a city centre flat, The Parool says.
The reaction from my colleagues was great. Especially as they recognised the snake to be the same that I was holding in one of my profile pictures.
