Yikes!  We travelled up that way when I was a kid and I refused to use the flush loos because of cane toads in them.  If I'd known snakes did that, I'd have died of constipation.

I still don't want it in a position where it can bite me on the bum.

I happen to love pythons. wub.gif They're so beautiful.

DH on the other hand, has lived in the NT and is snake phobic. Unfortunate that - he's had quite a few pythons slither through his place from time to time.

I wouldn't be very pleased however at finding a snake in my loo.

Yikes! I love pythons but it would freak me out to find one in the toilet. I'm guessing there was a frog living in the toilet (as they do) and the python has gone in there to get the frog.

We have a large green tree frog living in our downstairs toilet and DD refuses to use that toilet. Luckily we have another toilet upstairs. My kids would never go to the toilet again if they saw a snake in it!

I like pythons but I think I would be freaked out by finding one in my toilet.

Thankfully I never did find one growing up in Darwin original.gif
