Snake experts catch giant king cobra in Nakhon Ratchasima


A team of rescue volunteers rushed to the scene after being informed at around 5:45 p.m on December 12 that a giant king cobra slithered into a pile of scrap wood and old tires near the cassava plantation in Wang Nam Khiao District, Nakhon Ratchasima.

After inspecting the area and finding the snake’s exact location, one of the rescuers used a steel hook to pull it out of its hiding place. Once in the open, the rescuers quickly grabbed the snake’s head.

From the initial examination, it was found that the giant king cobra was more than 4 meters long. It will undergo further checking before being released back into nature.

The rescuers reminded villagers to regularly inspect houses and declutter spaces so it won’t be a refuge for dangerous animals or small animals such as mice, which attract venomous snakes that can cause injury or death to people nearby.
