Emergency services learn terrifying lesson after poking snake coming out of ceiling

Emergency services learn terrifying lesson after poking snake coming out of ceiling

The viral snake video shared on TikTok is triggering viewers' Ophidiophobia.

Even if you don't have a fear of snakes (Ophidiophobia) you will do soon enough.

Emergency services have learnt a terrifying lesson after trying to deal with a snake at a home in Malaysia earlier this year.

The viral TikTok - with over 168 million views - starts by showing members of the Pertahanan Awam, the Malaysia Civil Defense Department, attempting to capture a snake from a gap in the ceiling.

Another worker then uses a pole with a hook to make a bigger hole in the wall to get the snake out, safe and sound.

However, in a matter of seconds, the whole ceiling came crashing down as not one, not two, but three snakes - belonging to the longest snake species in the world - may have been having a threesome.

Slippery snakes secretly having sex in a ceiling. Yep, Happy Monday everyone.

Malaysian news outlet Sinar Harian said at the time that at least two of the reticulated pythons were mating.

Civil Defense Officer Azizah Hussain said the snakes weighed about 70.5 pounds each and were approximately 16 feet 4 inches long.

The other python - that may/may not have been having sex - weighed 55.1 pounds and came in at 13 feet 1 inch long.

Resident Som Salleh, 57, said at the time of the incident, he and his 26-year-old daughter were chatting in the next room before hearing the sound of something falling.

"He also shuddered because he saw the tail of a python coming out of the broken ceiling," he said.

"This is the first time I've seen a batik python that big.

"I left the house and immediately contacted the Civil Defense Force (APM). Actually, my son and I were talking in the next room, wanting to buy a new ceiling because some had broken before."

Hussain said that all three snakes were captured, while the two that were mating were released in a safe place.

I hope they were wearing protection.



Well, the viral snake video has been triggering viewers' Ophidiophobia ever since it was uploaded in February of this year.

"And this is how I abandon my house and become homeless. The snakes can enjoy the house now," one person wrote.

"No sir. I would for sure sell this house, there could be more," a second added.

"Even though those snakes will be caught, I would definitely not live [in] that house forevermore," commented a third.

"The way I screamed and threw my phone as if I was there when that ceiling came down," someone else said.
