Blue Cross volunteer Peter Edge was shocked to discover the enormous serpent in a shop bathroom.
When the 30-year-old first set eyes upon the 6ft orange snake in a toilet bowl in the back of the Blue Cross charity shop in Solihull he initially believed that someone was pulling a prank on him, but when the creature started moving he realized that the enormous reptile was actually the real deal.

"When I saw it I was in shock more than anything else," he said. "Itís not every day you see something like that. I thought it was a rubber snake at first and then it moved its head."

With the help of the store's assistant manager he was eventually able to free the snake's tail from the back of the toilet cistern, but when they tried to capture it in a basket it managed to break free and promptly disappeared down the u-bend.

The RSPCA ( Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ) was called in but despite a thorough search of the building and surrounding area no sign of the snake could be found.

"We have kept the toilet door firmly shut ever since and keep checking to see if he has poked his head up again but we havenít seen it," said assistant manager Amy Wallis.

"I like snakes but I was still terrified when stood face-to-face with one."

Id prefer the snake to some of the things you find in service station toilets . Need a hazmat suit to go in some of them.

There are very similar snakes in my neck of the woods (Florida).They are called Red Rat Snakes (Corn Snake). Very docile kind of snake, non poisonous. Very good type of snake for a pet.

Yep, they're wonderful and beneficial snakes that pose absolutely zero threat to humans. This is obviously an aberrant example, though, which tells me it's either a pet or a setup for a tabloid appearance.

If you see a leprechaun in your toilet, grab it quickly and demand it take you to the potty of gold.

Just don't get any ideas about bypassing the potty and start looking for the Leprechauns in the pants instead ~
