As if the idea of snakes anywhere–on a plane, on land– wasn’t already frightening enough, imagine a deadly cobra making its way out of your toilet.
That actually happened in a South African apartment, and it was caught on camera according to KTLA.
The spooky video shows a snake handler trying to remove the 8-foot cobra from a toilet in Pretoria, South Africa. The snake apparently entered the toilet through the drainage system according to local television station News 24.
The scariest part of this whole situation? The snake actually managed to get away from the snake handler, unseen by residents since escaping back into the sewage pipe.
According to Anton Meij, the person who posted the clip to Youtube, the cobra “got agitated and fought back,” causing the handler to lose his grip.
“We have put cameras in the pipes to look for it. Residents are still worried and some of them are feeling like if it comes up they want to kill it which is something I don’t want,” Barry Greenshields, the handler who missed the snake, told the television station.
“I hope he has left through the pipes,” Greenshields added.
