Snakes can get into unusual places like toilets through opening in the sewers so as to get their next meal. Plumbers have seen more snakes in roofs through hollow space  and under the house than toilets. Snakes can get into the toilet through the sewer opening. Most times they enter in pursuit of their meal or just following the trail of their next meal. Sewers may offer a hiding place for mice and rats.
