A leaky ceiling in a Brooklyn apartment building turned out to be a python taking a bath in a sink.

A 10-foot python found some shelter from the storm Sunday in the bathroom sink of a Brooklyn apartment, cops said.

A tenant on the seventh floor of the Howard Houses on Mother Gaston Blvd. in Brownsville complained to NYCHA employees that water was seeping through the ceiling about 9:50 a.m., cops said.

Workers showed up to check on the leak and found the water was coming from an apartment above on the eighth floor, but no one was home, police said.

The NYCHA workers got inside and found a pool of water in the bathroom, but retreated from the overflowing sink when they spotted the colossal reptile coiled in the porcelain basin, police said.

The shaken workers called the NYPD's Emergency Service Unit to remove the python, which is illegal to own as a pet in the city, cops said.

The 2-year-old snake was taken to a city Animal Care & Control shelter in Brooklyn, a spokesman and police said.

Staff at the AC&C were still taking in animals in response to Tropical Storm Irene, which left many homes underwater in parts of Queens and Staten Island, said spokesman Richard Gentles.
