We like to think of the bathroom as a safe space.
It’s the place where we should have the opportunity to be private people, undisturbed by nuisance. It’s where we all go to, you know, do our business. It’s not meant to be shared with anyone or anything in those moments.
But, the fact of the matter is that we share our bathrooms — whether at home or while out — with lots of things all the time, whether we see them or not. There are creepy crawlies everywhere, no matter where we live. Most of the time they are completely harmless, and are nothing to fret about. For instance, the common house spider will help you keep other pesky insects at bay, and it’s better to ignore them.
Sometimes, though, we get guests we definitely did not expect, in places we did not expect them. For instance: the toilet.
There are some truly surprising animals that can easily get into your toilet bowl through the drain pipes. There are others that might find their way into your toilet once they’re already in your home. There are others still that can get there via your toddler, but that’s a different story entirely.
Either way, no one wants to see any of these 10 creatures when they go to do their business. No way, no how. After reading this, it may just be worth a look inside the bowl before taking a seat!
