A New York man experienced an early-morning scare when a 4-foot-long snake slithered out of his toilet. Allen Shepard, 33, of Staten Island had begun to brush his teeth when he noticed something moving in his toilet bowl.

‘What the hell is that,’ he yelled out, according to SI Live.

Turns out it was a California Kingsnake. Freightening, yes, but the California King is non-venomous.


‘I came out [of the bathroom] and closed the door and I got a broom. The snake was getting up on top of the rim, ready to strike,’ said Shepard, a tenant at Bridgeview Apartments.


Shepard immediately called Karen Genco, the building’s supervisor. 


Ms Genco called a local drain cleaning service and the snake was eventually placed under control and taken to a Manhattan sanctuary.


The company suspects the snake made its way to Shepard’s toilet from another apartment in the building complex.


But Mr Shepard still seemed shaken hours after the incident, as did his nine-year-old daughter Allenix.


‘My dad will have to go to the bathroom first!’ Allenix told SI Live. 


‘I haven’t used the toilet yet,’ added Shepard.
