A man is recovering after a bloody encounter with a 10-foot python that slithered through the plumbing of his home and latched its jaws onto his penis as he was using a toilet.

Attaporn Boonmakchuay was smiling as Thai television stations interviewed him in his hospital bed about the intimate intrusion, and doctors said he would recover.

But photos of his blood-splattered bathroom in Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok, were testimony to his ordeal.

The 38-year-old told Thai TV Channel 7 that he struggled to the remove the snake for 30 minutes before he managed to free himself with help from his wife and a neighbour.

They tied a rope around the snake and Mr Attaporn pried open its jaws before passing out.
