Girl finds 7ft snake in toilet

A seven-year-old girl lifted the lid on the family loo - and found herself staring at a seven foot long boa constrictor.

Police in Hanover, Germany, managed to photograph the monster snake and call in wildlife experts before it disappeared back down the U-bend.

Wildlife experts believe the snake was once a pet and had escaped from a nearby home using the sewage system to move around looking for food.

"People buy these snakes when they are young and they grow very large very quickly and scare the life out of their owners who try to flush them down the lavatory or release them into the drains," said one.
