A Texas woman found a 12-foot African python crawling in her bathtub earlier this month.

Veronica Rodriguez had bathed her three guinea pigs in the bathroom earlier that day, reports The Eaglenewspaper in College Station, Texas.

While the guinea pigs were in an outdoor pen drying off, Rodriguez left the back door open, which is possibly how the python entered the house, The Eagle reports.

Rodriguez said she heard strange noises, and went to the bathroom to discover the giant snake.

Rodriguez called the police, and an officer arrived with a brown paper sack.

"I told him, 'you're going to need a bigger sack than that,' " Rodriguez told The Eagle.

The python has been returned to its owners. No guinea pigs were harmed.
