Sitting Target: Man Injured After Snake Attacks From Toilet Bowl
Monday , May 11, 2009

A Taiwanese man became a sitting target for a snake, which bit his penis as sat on the toilet at his rural home, local media reported on Monday.

"As soon as he sat down, he suddenly felt a knife-like pain and reacted instinctively by standing up," the China Times said. "When he looked down, he saw the big snake."

The 51-year-old man, from Nantou County, was under medical care with minor injuries, a director at Puli Christian Hospital said.

"As soon as he has passed the risk of infection, he can go," the director, who declined to be named, said. "A snake's mouth isn't always clean."

Local television images showed the black and yellow reptile, reportedly a species of rat snake, being uncoiled and plucked slowly from the toilet bowl.

Snakes regularly enter rural homes in Taiwan and other sub-tropical regions of Asia.

This has ALWAYS been one of my fears. My snakes would do this to me on purpose. I swear every single time one gets out on the rare occasion that it happens.. I find them in my bathroom!!
Never mind that I keep the buckets I thaw the rats in the closet(although they're disinfected, but I'm sure they can still smell something).. no, they're just out to get me lol

I told my husband this story. In typical Shawn fashion, he asks if rat snakes are poisonous. I tell him that no they aren't, and he says, "well, you'd still have to suck the poison out".

That reminds me of my son, who was 5 at the time. My oldest and middle children were in different bathrooms early one school morning and my 5-year old evidently couldn't hold it. He went out the back door and proceeded to relieve himself outside, in the darkness.

I went into his room, didn't see him ... then heard the back doors slam. I met him in the hallway and asked "did you go outside Christopher?" "Yeah, I had to go real bad". I started to lecture (again!) about leaving the house, especially in the dark and also about using the backyard as his bathroom. He simply told me, "It's okay, I did what you tell us; look before you leak."
