Mysterious ‘swamp creature’ crawls out of toilet in Alor Star house (Video)

A COUPLE in Alor Star had the shock of their lives when a mysterious eel-like "swamp creature" emerged from their toilet and crawled across the bathroom floor.

Zul Hanif Anip, 25, and his wife, Puteri, were home in Alor Star on Friday when the creature slithered from the toilet and slowly made its way around the house.

Zul said he was puzzled by the mysterious creature as it didn't resemble any local snakes that he was familiar with.

"I think the creature grew up inside the pipe works connected to the toilet hole because I have checked and there is no entry point for it to have gotten inside," Zul said.

"It was about two metres long with a very fat, thick body. I'm not sure if it was a snake or a kind of tidal creature or from the swamp. Its head was very small and it had a short tail, which did not look like a snake."

The couple captured the creature and released it into a nearby river.

"'My house is surrounded by paddy fields so it may have originated from there," he said.

They also uploaded a video footage of the mysterious creature in their house. The video has gone viral worldwide. The incident was reported by several news portals around the world.
