Horrifying: Look at what was found crawling up a person's toilet
An imgur user has posted a horrifying image to the photo-sharing website which will haunt the dreams of many.
in August, the National Geographic published a video describing the resilience of rats and how they're able to penetrate our toilets.
"A rat's ribs are hinged at the spine, enabling it to easily squeeze through the tightest spaces - like the pipes draining your toilet," it said.
"And rats are great swimmers too; they can hold their breath for up to three minutes. See how quickly a rat can go from the city streets to your bathroom."
And an image posted on imgur is clear evidence a sizeable rat is more than able to wriggle into our pipes and up our toilets.
"Rats and toilets... I didn't know it could actually happen! One of my biggest fears as a child," user Cecebird wrote.
"This was at a hotel my uncle was staying at, in his hotel room...He heard scratching in his bathroom. I would check out immediately! If it happened once, it could happen again."
Never using a toilet again...
