    Seattle Family Discovers 4-Foot Snake Slithering in Their Toilet

    The Seattle Police Department tweeted this photo on Friday, Nov. 24, 2017 of a snake found in a family's toilet.

    A family made an unusual discovery inside the bathroom of their north Seattle apartment on Friday — a snake was hiding in their toilet.

    KOMO-TV reports the family called police after a child found the 4-foot snake inside the apartment in the Lake City neighborhood.

    Officers helped remove the snake, and personnel with the Pacific Northwest Herpetological Society picked it up.

    Society officials say the snake appears to be a ball python, a non-venomous constrictor that is a popular pet among reptile fans.
