An enormous venomous snake has been managing to evade capture in an apartment complex in South Africa.
The nightmarish situation has seen residents fearful for their safety due to the presence of a large commode cobra which, having seemingly entered the building through the plumbing system, has been turning up inside people's bathrooms by popping up out of the toilet.

In the video below, professional snake catcher Barry Greenshields can be seen attempting to capture the reptile inside a container, however the snake ultimately managed to elude his grasp.
"We still have no idea where the snake is hiding," wrote Anton Mejier who recorded the footage.

"We have put cameras in the pipes to look for it. Residents are still worried and some of them are feeling like if it comes up they want to kill it which is something I don't want."

"I hope he has left through the pipes."

Just get one of the snake charmers to sit in front of a toilet and play his flute.† The snake will come up, right?!† Then he can be caught.

What the hell. I mean...what the hell. I thought Pennywise was scary enough in the bathroom...To heck with animal rights, cut the head off that sucker and have it for dinner. They don't even know where it is! Where is this place? How are there cobras there?
