Default Woman Finds 8 Foot Python In Washer

The ordinary chore of washing clothes turns out to be anything but for a woman in Maine.

Mara Ranger found an eight-foot long snake wrapped around her soaking-wet clothes and not just any snake, but a python.

"I take my jeans out and then I put my hand back in there to get more and something moved under my hand. I jumped back and all of sudden it's head starts coming out of the washing machine and I mean it looked huge," Ranger said.

The python made its way through the water pipes and into the washing machine on the second floor of Ranger's house, officials said.

"I had the willy-willies and I'm not kidding, I thought I was going to faint right there," Ranger said.

When animal control arrived they couldn't believe what they saw. The python was eventually removed.

Ranger said she'll be paranoid when doing laundry from now.

"I'm going to be looking in the tub first and before and after, maybe even during the rinse cycle," she said.

According to animal control, the snake was hungry and shedding which may have lead it to find water in Ranger's pipes.

ABC News contributed to this report.

LOL Richard, I guess his shower was on the bum.
It seems like there are many of these rascals making
mischief around the world.

Here's a couple others:
