Python bites man on the toilet

A 5-foot Python has bitten a 65-year-old Austrian man whilst on the toilet.

The Daily Mail reports that the 65-year-old went to the toilet and “felt a ‘pinch’ on his genitals and jumped to his feet only to find a 5ft albino python staring back at him”.

The man, who is from Graz, had to call the medics for which sources say he was lucky as the snake that bit him was not venomous.

However, the bite was at risk of becoming infected due to bacteria.

Police condemned the snake owner, which the snake reportedly belonged to a neighbour.

The owner has been referred to prosecutors for negligent bodily harm, but it is unclear whether the man will be charged.
