A woman screamed in horror after finding a snake in her washing machine.



Emily Visnic was doing laundry in her Florida apartment when she made the shocking discovery and has no idea about how the snake ended up in the machine.

She told WPEC-TV: ''I looked down and I saw something snakeskin and I was like, 'Huh. What did I put in here that was snakeskin?' And I reached down and it started slithering and oh my gosh. I screamed so loud. It was a huge python.''

Animal control suggested that the snake had entered through the building's pipes and that a neighbour had previously heard hissing.

Visnic explained: ''The neighbor directly below me, I guess the day before, had gone down to the front desk and said, 'This is going to sound crazy, but I'm hearing hissing.'''
