    6-foot snake found in family's toilet

    St. Petersburg, Florida - A very strange discovery was made at 454 4th Ave in St. Pete. In fact, the unbelievable and creepy find was made in Beth Young's...john.

    Beth Young/Found snake in bathroom:
    What happened? And he says there is a snake in the toilet and I’m like no way!

    In a room designed for reading, it was time to do some serious thinking.

    Beth:
    But luckily there was a little toilet paper in there and it covered up part of its face, so it didn't lash out at us or anything like that.

    But it did get spooked, enough so to go the other way. a quick thinking Beth and Shannon made this snake catcher out of PVC.

    Beth:
    It went back in, so we put the device right near the opening right there where the snake was, and when it snuck back out we caught it as as we pulled it up, it kept coming and coming, it was about 5 or 6 feet long.

    The slithering snake, probably happy to be out of that environment began to wrap around Shannnon's arm.

    Beth:
    That wasn't so bad as the stench, cause ya know, it was lying in the sewers for a while.

    Beth quickly grabbed a bag.

    Beth:
    And I'm holding the bag out like this and he's yelling, the tail, the tail, and we finally got in a bag and took it downstairs.

    It has become a great story to tell about a place that doesn't get talked about too much...but will from now on.

    Beth:
    I do that when I come in here now, just in case, ya know, to get a little back flow

    Alligators in NY sewers? That's false fact (Mythbusters had this myth busted). Alligators cannot suvived in dark, cold sewers with little or no food. They required sun basking and warm water included fresh meatly food to feed on. Alligators in sewers (not living in but trapped) was common thing in southern states.
    Here's true creepy fact: NY sewers filled with big rats not gators. Enjoy your night with sewer rats, ravensteve1961.

    As for 6 feet snake...it look like Florida Kingsnake as based on my reptile guidebook. Or it's perhaps color-morph corn snake (grow to 72").
    I remember it did happens in my middle school when teacher's rat snake were loose and found in a sinkhole. :laugh2:

    The movie you mentioned were just made-up horror movie. American gators grew to 19'2", a known record. 100 feet? It would take up many years but none of gators would live up to that length. :crazy:
    I know a lot with reptiles but dont nagging me on stupid myths. I'm Mythbuster fan. :nana:

    One more thing...how's about sewer rat find a way into your bed and bite your balls? :ugh2:
    No more debate on sewer gator myth. This myth is busted and final one.

    I've hear many stories about this alot...

    how the snake got into the sewer system is beyond me...but I've hear stories where a man sat on the toilet just to do some shitting and then all of a sudden a snake popped out and bit his ass! I don't know if that snake was posionous or not, but I think the man survived...I dunno but to tell you the truth, I always make sure there's not any snakes in the toilet by flushing the tiolet first before sitting on it lol

    I've heard stories where a 7 foot snake sneaked out of the jungle in south america and attacked a 12 year old boy and even shallowed it whole!

    too bad that kid didn't survive... *sigh*

    I agree.. I haven't been to Flordia since 1990, and I did visited Gatorland when I was 8. I remember there was swamps around it, and we had to be quiet and careful not to make any noises or draw some attention to alligators.
