A woman has been released from hospital after receiving a snake bite on her bottom while using the toilet.

Iris Castroverde, 30, was using the toilet when she heard some odd splashing in the bowl, followed up with a stinging bite on her backside.

As she leapt to her feet and flushed the toilet, the mother of two caught a glimpse of a 20cm long green and yellow snake disappearing down the drain.

In a daze of fear and pain Ms Castoverde, from the Spanish town of Narón, managed to get to hospital, where she was treated and discharged.

She told Spain’s ABC newspaper: ‘It happened to me, but it could have happened to my two children.’

Snakes seem determined to invade the sacred space of the lavatory. A Singaporean woman was bitten on her leg by a snake she found in her loo.

But nothing could be worse than the man in Ghana who was bitten on his penis by a snake while using a public restroom.
