A bizarre snake-like creature has been filmed crawling out of a family's bathroom in Alor Setar, Malaysia.
The large and dark creature left the family in shock when they saw it on October 6. They believe it had been living in their home's sewage pipes.
It had apparently grown too large to fit in the pipes and had emerged for air or in search of food.
Footage shows the animal poking its small head out of the bathroom door before slithering out onto the floor.
In an interview, he said: "It was scary. It came up through the toilet. I think the creature grew up inside the pipe works connected to the toilet hole, because I have checked and there is no entry point for it to have got inside."
He added: "He was about two metres long with a very fat, thick body. I'm not sure if it was a snake or a kind of tidal creature or from the swamp. It's head was very small and it had a short tail, which did not look like a snake."
