I was taking a shower about 30 minutes ago, when I noticed something very dark and small on the bathtub floor by my foot. I thought it might be a clump of my wife's very dark hair, and moved my foot, thinking it was stuck under my heel. It disappeared, but something didn't feel right.
About a minute later I saw it come back up, and of course I jumped out of the shower as fast as I could.
I wear glasses, so I couldn't see it clearly. However, After I had jumped out, it extended itself up what was probably a full foot, and I could see the tongue flick out for a moment. It went back down when I moved back from the tub.
It had to be a reasonably thin snake, since the drain has some metal that divides it into four smaller holes, but it was impressively long for something that thin.
How did this thing get in there? How do I deal with it?
I've covered both shower drains with clear containers with weighted objects on top, so if it comes up it can't get into the house.
I live in a mobile home, so that might make a difference with the sewer lines.
