A man identified as Sabri Tazali has escaped death after a snake bite him on the buttocks while he was using the toilet.
Tazali, who was at his home in the town of Selayang in the Malaysian state of Selangor, was playing a game on his mobile phone when he was attacked by the snake which had been lurking in his toilet.
Speaking after surviving the snake attack, Tazali said he was “lucky” the python had not bitten his privates.
The 28-year-old said he felt a sharp sting on his bum.
After feeling the snake’s bite on his buttocks, Tazali said he stood up and yanked the reptile off, flinging it against the bathroom wall.
In a panic, he then broke the toilet door while trying desperately to open it.
He went to a local hospital to have his wound checked and received an anti-tetanus vaccine from doctors after fining out the snake was non-venomous.
Meanwhile, firefighters arrived at the house to remove the snake.
Narrating what happened on social media, he wrote: “My bottom was bitten by a snake. The snake came out of the toilet.”
He added: “Luckily, it didn’t bite my eggs.”
Tazali added that he was grossed out when he plucked “half the snake’s tooth” from his bum where the snake bit him. He suspects the tooth broke off when he “yanked the snake hard” and threw it against the wall.
