“It’s actually been one of my fears since I was a kid,”

A woman in Colorado said she was “terrified” to find a snake sitting in her toilet bowl.

Miranda Stewart was having problems flushing her toilet at her apartment in Fort Collins when she discovered the reptile.

Speaking to KDVR-TV, Stewart said:

“I used the restroom, like went to flush and everything and it wasn’t going down. I looked and leaned in closer and a snake head slithered up. I was terrified,”

“It’s actually been one of my fears since I was a kid,”

According to UPI.com, the reptile is a non-venomous corn snake which has since been adopted by the maintenance worker, Wesley Stanford.

Stanford said:

“I took him home and my wife was very happy with me and we named him Boots. He’s our little guard snake on the property,”
