A three-metre boa constrictor lurking in a toilet has bitten a Thai man on the penis, local media said Friday…

The 45-year-old man was rushed to hospital Thursday after being bitten by the snake at his home in Bangkok, local newspaper Daily News reported.

“I felt something bit my penis. When I saw the snake, I instinctively caught it with my hands so it could let me go,” the man, who received 15 stitches, told the newspaper.

“I should have been more careful. I saw a snake in another toilet in the house two months ago so I was using this one instead. But I didn’t realise the toilets could be connected,” he added.

In 2016, another Thai man’s penis was bitten by a three-metre python lurking in his toilet. Neither of the men suffered permanent damage.

Snakes are common in the South-east Asian country. In Bangkok alone, nearly 35,000 snakes were reported to and caught by the Bangkok Fire and Rescue Department last year, doubling the figure from four years ago.

Most snakes found in the Thai capital are not poisonous, according to the department.
