*Yikes! You’re definitely going to wanna look down before you squat in the restroom from now on. Because something long and slithery may be looking up at you from the commode. Its the last thing you would think to find in any toilet, but definitely not the restroom at the office. But two San Diego women got the crap shocked out of ’em when they saw a 5-foot Colombian Rainbow Constrictor coming out of the toilet in their San Diego office.
Stephanie Lacsa and Holly Wells, co-founders of Vertical PR + Marketing, noticed the water in the toilet was higher than usual. Lacsa said she grabbed a toilet plunger but then noticed something coming out of the toilet.
It was the flicker of a forked-tongue that sent the business woman running out of the bathroom screaming.
The snake was probably as scared as Lacsa, because by the time the San Diego County Department of Animal Services arrived, the reptile had completely exited the toilet and was coiled behind its base.
Lacsa admitted she had taped the door shut.
Daniel De Sousa with SD County Animal Services said the boa constrictor bit one of the handlers since it was removed from the downtown office.
He said the snake was shedding and agitated. It was also described as “underweight” in the news report.

De Sousa said it was likely the snake was someone’s pet, and not something that came from a sewer.
Lacsa confirmed that her landlord said that a tenant in the same building owned a snake that likely got lost. However, the tenant at this point is nowhere to be found.
Animal control officers captured the snake and took it to a veterinarian.
They are waiting for the owner to come forward and retrieve the reptile.
Don’t be a poop head. Come and get your pet!!
