The wife and neighbor unified to cover the animal's mouth and then tied it to prevent others from being bitten. Authorities then arrived at the scene to provide a rescue for the victim as well as for the animal who was trapped in the toilet.
The snake is estimated to have a length of 9 feet or at least more than three meters in length. The size of the snake is already considered a significant threat to humans as well as animals due to its ability to devour smaller animals and capable of suffocating an individual with its powerful muscular body.
Rescuers must have to destroy the bowl in order to recover the animal and will be provided with a veterinarian support. The snake will then be released back into the wild after it also healed its wound sustained against the victim.
The man identified as Attaporn Boonmakchuay is a 38-year-old male was then rushed to the hospital due to bleeding wounds suffered by the bite of the snake. Attaporn underwent a minor surgical procedure to conduct a tissue repair as well as several stitches to the affected part of his body.
He is now in a safe condition in the medical facility as he has been placed under bedside care for at least seven days. The patient will not be observed for further medical intervention and analysis for the possibility of infection to his urinary and reproductive tract after the incident.
The attending physician responsible for handling the case of the patient indicated that the bite marks did not affect his urinary and reproductive tract damaged. But he is still under observation for possible signs of sepsis.
The incident is rare but also occurred to several areas in the world. Reported cases of pythons and other snakes that were found coming out from toilet were reported mostly in tropical countries where most snakes live. Snakes can also slither their way out from the sink, especially when the sink has no protective covering against incoming animals coming from the pipelines.
Reticulated pythons are endemic in the Southeast Asian region, reaching as far as southern China and South Asia.
This species of snake is not venomous, which makes Attaporn lucky for surviving the ordeal with the snake.
The snake consumes its prey by reticulating it until it stops the blood circulation and eventually allowing the snake to consume their prey.
This type of python is one of the largest species because it can grow at least within 20 foot or more, enabling any big mammals, including humans to be at risk for being overpowered when being attacked by the animal.
So before you use the toilet, you should check first the toilet bowl for any suspicious locomotions to prevent any risk of harm.
