Bangkok - A three-metre python lurking in a toilet has bitten a Thai man on the penis, local media said on Friday.
The 45-year-old man was rushed to hospital on Thursday after being bitten by the snake at his home in Bangkok, local newspaper Daily News reported.
"I felt something bit my penis. When I saw the snake, I instinctively caught it with my hands so it could let me go," the man, who got 15 stitches on his penis, told the newspaper.
"I should have been more careful. I saw a snake in another toilet in the house two months ago so I was using this one instead. But I didn't realise the toilets could be connected," he added.
In 2016, another Thai man's penis was bitten by a three-metre python lurking in his toilet. Neither of the men suffered permanent damage.
