NEW YORK (AP) - There was no Halloween bogeyman in the closet for one Brooklyn woman - just a 7-foot-long python in her toilet. Nadege Brunacci was washing her hands in her bathroom before dawn Monday when she glanced back and saw the slithering serpent peeking out from her toilet, most of its body hidden in the pipes.

"I turned on the light and screamed," Brunacci, 38, told the New York Daily News. "It still makes my heart race."

Brunacci slammed down the lid, put a heavy box on top of the toilet and began calling for help, which came from her landlord and firefighters. Plumbers had to tear apart the downstairs neighbor's pipes to capture the snake, she said.

It's unclear how the snake made its way into the pipes.

Brunacci, a restaurateur, says she gave the snake to a friend who keeps it as a pet and named it after her.

Brunacci says she started using her daughter's training toilet after the scare in her third-floor apartment. And when she brushes her teeth, she said, "I'm looking over my shoulder."

I've heard of, but I've never seen a snake do it but I did see a lizzard crawl out and up to the water surface, to get air, maybe. He dived back through when, in surprize I spoke to him and demanded to know what the hell he was doing in my bathroom uninvited. (Glad I was shaving rather than relieving. No telling what or where I'd have had to clean.)
