Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Snake catchers were called to a family's home in Thailand after a 5-year-old boy spotted something unusual in the toilet -- a 20-foot python.

Snake catcher Thammasatri Maneerat was summoned to a home in Mueang Chonburi District, Chonburi Privince, by mother-of two Chalida Thawephol, 37.

Thawephol said her 5-year-old son came back from the bathroom and told her there was "something strange" inside the toilet, which she soon realized was a massive snake.

A video captured at the scene shows Maneerat and his colleagues wrangle the serpent into a canvass bag and bring it outside to weigh it in front of a 7-Eleven store.

The 20-foot-long snake weighed in at 65 pounds.

"The weather is very cold at this time. This may have caused the snake to escape the cold air and sleep in the toilet where there is warm water," Maneerat said.
