An Israeli man was rushed to hospital after a snake bit his penis during a visit to the toilet.

The 35-year-old received medical treatment after feeling “a sharp burning sensation” on his penis last Friday.

The man was sitting on the toilet at his family’s home in Nofit, northern Israel.

The small snake, which is not venomous, came out of the toilet through the pipe and latched onto the end of his penis, before releasing his grasp and escaping the same way he came.

The victim called paramedics and was treated on site by Magen David Adom.

The man has sustained bite marks to his penis but is said to be “well” following treatment at the Rambam Medical Centre in Haifa.
