The scorching summer heat proved too much for one snake in Queensland who decided to seek refuge under the urinal of the men’s toilets in a Maroochydore hotel.
Unsurprisingly, this was one guest that wasn’t welcome at the Waterfront Hotel.
The Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers were called in to remove the unwanted reptile on Tuesday and posted a video to Facebook of the close encounter.
WHEN YOU GOTTA GO, YOU GOTTA GO…. EVEN SNAKESRichie was called to the Waterfront Hotel in Maroochydore where he found a snake perched under the urinal in the mens toilets. The snake was quite concealed so anyone could have gone for a number one and not even noticed it. Luckily it was a harmless Common Tree Snake and not something venomous. It was quite hot outside so I suspect it was after somewhere cool to escape the heat of the day. Cool tiled bathrooms and toilets provide the perfect place for snakes to do this so it's a good idea to keep your doors closed and have screens where possible in Queensland. Enjoy the video everyone. -Ross-Posted by Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 on Tuesday, 2 February 2016
As can be seen, any unsuspecting male using the urinal could have had a rather, um, personal confrontation with the snake.
Luckily though, it was a common tree snake -- a harmless, non-venomous snake that rarely bites.
Tiled bathrooms and toilets provide ideal places for snakes to cool down during the warm weather so it’s a good idea to keep doors and screens closed to keep them out.
