The incident occurred in Boonmakchuay's home, where the 10-foot snake had wound its way through the plumbing and into the toilet bowl. It took Boonmakchuay, with the help of his wife and a neighbor, 30 minutes to unlatch the unwelcome reptile. "While I was holding it, it began to lose some strength," Boonmakchuay tells the Associated Press. "I used my hand to pry open its mouth. The snake, then, released its grip by itself."
