A house's plumbing system in South Jakarta has become a nest for snakes.

South Jakarta Fire and Rescue Agency personnel removed on Monday a 4-metre-long mother of 15 pythons from a house's plumbing system on Jl. Haji Meran neighborhood unit (RT) 09 community unit (RW) 05 in Lenteng Agung.

"Locals reported that a python had made its nest in the plumbing system of the house, where 15 pythons were found. Then we pursued the mother," rescue group A sector X Jagakarsa team leader Musonip said as quoted by beritajakarta.id.

Musonip said residents were reported to have spotted a python entered the plumbing system at 4.15 am (5.15 am Singapore time).

Eight personnel were then deployed to remove the snake, he said.

Musonip said the personnel had to dig 5 metres through the ground to find the python.

Fifteen pythons of around 30 centimetres each were removed from the plumbing system of a house on Jl. Lenteng Agung Barat on Friday.
