A man in Austria was bitten by a 1.6-meter python during an early-morning visit to the toilet at his home on Monday, police said.

警方說,奧地利一名男子週一清晨在家中上廁所,被1隻長1.6公尺的蟒蛇咬了。

The 65-year-old victim ’’felt a ’nip’ in the genital area’’ shortly after sitting on the toilet at home in Graz just after 6 a.m., according to a statement from police in Styria province. He then looked into the toilet and discovered the albino reticulated python.

根據施蒂里亞邦警方聲明,這名65歲受害者早上6點後在位於格拉茨的住家坐馬桶時,「覺得『生殖器部位』被『咬』了一下」。他望向馬桶後發現了這條白化網紋蟒。

The snake apparently had escaped unnoticed from the apartment of the man’s 24-year-old neighbor. It wasn’t immediately possible to figure out how it escaped and how it got into the toilet, but police said it may have made its way through the drains.

這隻蛇顯然是從該名男子的24歲鄰居的公寓裡悄悄逃出來。無法馬上弄清楚牠如何逃脫及如何進入廁所,但警方說牠可能是透過排水管溜進來。

A reptile expert was called to retrieve the snake, which was returned to his owner.

一名爬蟲類動物專家被叫去抓蛇,牠已被交還給主人。
