On the subject “what can one find hidden in a toilet bowl?”, We present you the case of a family from Texas who discovered a rattlesnake in their toilet bowl. According to the family, the snake was pretty much alive and was doing its best in order to climb out of the toilet bowl.
Fearing for their lives, the family immediately called the Big Country Snake Removal company in order to rid them of their unwanted visitor. However, upon inspecting their house, the snake removal company found more than one stray snake.
According to the company’s spokesperson, the snake removal team found out that more than 20 rattlesnakes in the family’s storm cellar. Furthermore, it would seem that five of the rattlesnakes were infants.
Fortunately, no injuries have been reported by the family, and the large rattlesnake family was successfully relocated. As for the little creeper that exited through the family’s toilet, the experts believe that the snake somehow managed to enter a relief pipe and to make its way up.
To ensure the family’s safety, the snake removal company sealed the relief pipe. After a clean sweep, no other rattlesnakes were found on the Texas family’s property. The company’s spokesperson declared that snakes belonging to this genus are masters of disguise, relying on skin camouflage in order to elude bigger predators.
Although the family claimed that they hadn’t seen a rattlesnake on their property for years, the company’s spokesperson declared that even though we can’t see them, there are still out there.
As for the risk posed on the family, the snake removal company declared that they were fortunate enough not to visit the storm cellar. Rattlesnakes are extremely protective of their infants, and their bite is not something to be trifled with.
The neurotoxin carried by the snake’s venom can kill an adult in six hours. Rattlesnake bite symptoms may also include pain, tingling, swelling, numbness, nausea, weakness, and breathing issues. If you’ve been bitten by a rattlesnake, stay calm, wash the area with soap and water, and immobilize it. After that, dial the emergency number for treatment.
