Toilet snake shocks hotel guests

The snake that was found

A guest at a hotel in Holland got a bit of a shock when she found a massive python wriggling around in her toilet!

The 2.5 metre-long snake had escaped from a room on a different floor, where police found another 30 exotic animals being kept in plastic boxes.

The illegal collection included poisonous frogs, more snakes and a baby crocodile. There were even two geckos running around the room.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the bizarre discovery.
