(Scroll down for video) Family members who live in an apartment in South Africa, were horrified to find a long venomous snake inside their toilet bowl early one morning.

The cobra was found on Thursday morning, in one of the toilet of an apartment complex in Pretoria.

Snake catcher Barry Greenshields was called to the apartment on Glenletta Court, and he recorded himself trying to extract the long snake from the toilet bowl.

He estimated the snake to be 8 feet long. Greenshields said that the snake exhibited abnormal strength and managed to resist being pulled from the toilet bowl.

After trying to pull the snake out of the toilet for several minutes, the cobra overpowered the snake catcher and disappeared in the pipes.

Residents of the apartment complex are concerned that the snake might try to come out of a toilet while someone is using it.

They used special cameras to search in the pipes of the building for the snake, but so far, they were unsuccessful.
