A family got an unwelcome surprise when they found a 3ft corn snake lurking in their bathroom.
The RSPCA was called to collect the reptile, thought to be somebody’s escaped pet, from a home in Grays, Essex on April 16.
RSPCA animal collection officer and exotics officer Joe White said the caller’s daughter was ‘absolutely hysterical’ after stumbling across the animal.
The snake was ‘a little skinny’ but ‘feisty’ and has been taken to a wildlife centre to recover. (Text and photo courtesy Metro)
