A 3.6-metre python snake has been removed from a toilet bowl as it proved to be a pain in the behind.
Fire crews were called to the bathroom of a house in Malaysia after it reportedly bit a man's bum last month.
Iskandar Puteri Fire and Rescue Department station chief Khairi Zainudin told The Independent snakes can often be found in cool and wet spots during hot seasons.
"The python was successfully caught using a snake pole and has since been released from the housing area," he said.
"Snakes usually come out during this hot season to spot for cool and wet spots."
Iskandar Puteri Fire Department posted a series of photos on Facebook.
In one photo, the snake was so large, it broke some of the piping in the toilet.
Another photo saw two fire crews forcefully pulling the python out.
It's not the first time a snake has been found in a toilet bowl.
In 2019, a Brisbane woman was bitten in the bum by a carpet python while she was on the toilet.
Snake Catchers Brisbane said the snake was "spooked" by the woman sitting down, so it "simply lashed out in fear".
