A young boy is afraid of using the bathroom of his home after finding a huge snake in the toilet bowl, according to snake catchers in the United Kingdom.

The 5-year-old boy and his mother, Laura Cowell of Southend, said that they panicked when the snake popped its head out of the toilet bowl and stuck out its tongue.

The incident unfolded on Wednesday morning, when the 5-year-old boy went to use the toilet.

He lifted the lid, and saw the snake.

Cowell placed weights on the toilet lid top keep it shut until snake catchers arrived at the scene.

Scales and Fangs owner Rob Yeldham arrived at the home and removed the snake that measured 3 feet long.

Cowell said that she noticed the toilet was a bit clogged for several days before the snake popped out its head.

Yeldham said that the snake probably got into the sewer system outside of the home and made its way up the toilet.

He estimates that the snake was stuck for no longer than a few days as it appeared to be in good health.

Yeldham will keep the snake in his shop until someone will adopt it.

Yeldham said that he never removed a snake from a toilet since he began catching reptiles 10 years ago.
