MALAYSIA - Answering the call of nature turned out to be a harrowing time for an entire family when one of them stumbled upon a pair of cobras mating in the bathroom.
Sinar Harian reported that the victim had gone to the bathroom-cum-storage room around noon and saw the snakes which were about 2m long.
The victim, who lives in Kampung Sena Rendang near Marang, came close to being bitten, said Village Development and Security Committee deputy chairman Mohd Nasharuddin, 42.
Mohd Nasharuddin, who did not identify the person, said the victim then sought his help as his house was just about 15m away.
"Once I was told about it, I immediately contacted the Marang Civil Defence Department," Mohd Nasharuddin said.
The department sent four personnel to remove the snakes.
