A Florida woman was left horrified after she found a snake in her washing machine.
Speaking to CBS12 on Friday, Aug. 7, Emily Visnic said she recently moved to a studio apartment where she has her own laundry room. Recently, she opened her washing machine and was shocked to find a huge python inside. She initially mistook it for a snake print garment.
“I looked down and I saw something snakeskin and I was like, ‘Huh. What did I put in here that was snakeskin?’ And I reached down and it started slithering and oh my gosh. I screamed so loud. It was a huge python,” she told the channel.
Visnic then called apartment maintenance to remove the reptile from the machine. She, however, has no idea how a reptile got into the machine.
“It’s kind of mysterious and that’s what I’m so curious about. How the hell did it get in my washing machine?” she said.
“It doesn’t seem like it could’ve gone through the pipes right into the washing machine. And then, it’s like, did it just go through my apartment and then into the washing machine?” Visnic wondered.
Viscin then learned the reptile may have been a pet. A day prior to the incident, a neighbor had reported hearing a snake.
“The neighbor directly below me, I guess the day before, had gone down to the front desk and said, ‘This is going to sound crazy, but I’m hearing hissing,'” said Visnic.
The incident comes days after a woman found a four-foot corn snake slithering out of the toilet in her home in Fort Collins, Colorado. Miranda Stewart woke up from sleep and entered her restroom where she was greeted by the reptile.
“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,” she told KDVR.
The woman’s boyfriend immediately called the person responsible for the maintenance of the apartment complex to remove the reptile. After almost 40 minutes, the man was able to rescue the snake. He then adopted the reptile.
