Boa Constrictor Emerges From Office Toilet In San Diego
SAN DIEGO, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- A full-sized boa constrictor slithered out of a toilet at a public relations firm in Southern California last week, according to a press release from the company.
When Stephanie Lacsa, co-founder for Vertical PR + Marketing, noticed a higher-than-usual water level in one of the San Diego office building's toilets last Wednesday, she went to work with a plunger.
Something then began to emerge from the toilet drain.
"I thought my eyes were deceiving me," Lacsa said, according to a statement from the firm published on San Diego Animal Control's Facebook page. "But as soon I saw the flicker of its tongue, I definitely knew that it was in fact a large snake heading straight toward me."
