An elderly couple "got quite a fright" when they discovered a python wrapped around a toilet seat in their home in Paisley.
The couple found the young royal python in the bathroom on November 17 and called animal welfare charity Scottish SPCA for help.
The snake, who has been called Lulu, was rescued and is now being cared for at the charity's Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.
Chief Inspector Fiona Henderson said the snake ended up in the couple's bathroom after it squeezed through a gap in the wall.
Anyone who recognises Lulu is being asked to call Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
