Have you had any funny animal encounters?
One night, I went into the bathroom and heard weird noises coming from the toilet. I walked over to find a gigantic frog hanging out in the bowl. Before I could react, he jumped out and landed on my foot. I ran out and closed the door. I ended up going back in with a cup and eventually was able to catch him and put him back outside. Apparently, this is more common than you might think in Florida. Now I always check the toilet before using it!
