A man has had to call in the fire department after a “crazy” find in his toilet.

Crews from Iskandar Puteri Fire Station in Malaysia were called to the bathroom of a house after the man was reportedly bitten on the bottom last month.

The toilet was checked and firefighters removed a 3.6-metre python from the toilet bowl.

Such was its size, photos from the fire department show it actually broke some of the piping.

The snake was released safely outside.

'Close the bathroom door'

On Facebook, the snake’s “scary” bathroom exploits had some people spooked.

“Be careful in the bathroom after this,” one woman wrote.

“Don't forget to close the bathroom door too.”

One man called it “crazy”, while another woman wrote it had her worried about using the bathroom at work.

As for why the snake was slithering through the pipes, some suggested it’s possible the recent hot weather was to blame and the toilet-dwelling serpent was seeking a place to cool down.

Snakes have been known to on rare occasions be found in toilet bowls.

An Italian man called the police after he found a female royal python in a toilet last year.

Crews had to remove the bowl to get the snake out.

A Melbourne resident also found a tiger snake in their toilet in September last year.

Luckily, no one, including the snake, was injured.
