An Australian’s trip to the bathroom turned out to be a nightmare after a deadly snake was found curled up around the base of the toilet.

Snake catcher Stuart McKenzie with the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 took to Facebook on Sept. 26 to share the incident.

He said that another snake rescuer named Heather received a call saying that a snake was found in the toilet of a local business. The caller said that a staff member sat down on the toilet and "heard a hiss."

"Heather just attended a call this morning where a staff member at a local business sat down on the toilet at the start of their shift and suddenly heard a hisssss. They turned around to see a 5 foot Eastern Brown Snake curled up around the base of the toilet," McKenzie wrote in the Facebook post.

Heather and McKenzie immediately rushed to the scene and rescued the snake from the bathroom before releasing it into the wild.

"We responded asap and headed straight out and relocated the snake elsewhere. Just shows that snakes want nothing to do with you, they also would prefer not to watch you go to the toilet!" McKenzie wrote.

The post has since gone viral with people flooding the comments section.

"Omg I would have a heart attack!!!" one person wrote.

"That would be the end of me too," wrote another person.

Last year, Joshua Castle, a snake catcher from Brisbane, Australia, had spoken to International Business Times about why snakes end up in unusual places like bedrooms, kitchens and toilets.

"Smaller species often get brought inside the home by a cat, larger species end up inside by accident through cat/dog doors and/or flyscreen holes due to temperature. It may be too hot outside so they need to cool off inside on tiles," Castle told IBT.

"They also sneak in through doors and windows that are left open for longer than needed. Some species of snakes can slither up the pipework to your toilet/sink/shower, this often happens by accident too, they either were looking for water or they got into a disagreement with a cat and bolted into the sewage," he added.
