A man peacefully relieving himself was shocked to find his most intimate part the subject of an ophidian assault, when a serpent either unexpectedly took fright at his dangling member, or else spied a tasty morsel.
The man (51) went to relieve himself on the toilet of his Taiwan home. After he had sat down, he suddenly felt a sharp pain, as though he had been cut with a blade.
Shocked by the intense pain, he stood up instinctively, and looking down was shocked to see a large snake hanging off his penis, its fangs sunk firmly home. Its persistence possibly suggests it had indeed mistaken his member for a small rodent, as otherwise it might be expected to flee immediately…
He soon went to the hospital, and fortunately his injuries were light and the snake non-venomous, though doctors harbour concerns of infection: “The inside of a snake’s mouth is none too hygienic, but once we’ve confirmed there is no infection he can go home.”
