1-8 snake2

It's like a nightmare come true -- a huge snake found coming out of a toilet in California.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

It is still a mystery in San Diego what happened Tuesday in the bathroom of a downtown office:

(Lasca) "I noticed that the water level was up a little higher than normal."

But when Stephanie Lasca tried to fix the toilet:

(Lasca) "I noticed that something's coming out -- saw the flicker of the snake's tongue."

And she is petrified of snakes:

(Lasca) "I booked it out of there -- plunger still in hand -- and screamed all the way to my desk."

But when Lasca called her marketing firm partner over:

(Wells) "I absolutely didn't believe her."

Then Holly Wells saw the nearly six foot long boa for herself in the toilet and:

(Wells) "Shut the door -- taped it shut -- and then scream and ran."

Animal services came over and took the snake. They don't know how it got there and are looking for whoever might own it.
