How to catch a King Cobra with your bare hands - not showboating says snake catcher

Picture: Daily News

 

A snake catcher in Krabi told the media he was not showboating after catching a five meter long King Cobra with his bare hands. 

 

He didn't want to harm the animal and was keen to show how to safely handle a snake. 

 

Videos shared to social media showed Suthee Naewhat, 37, managing to extricate the snake from a pile of wood and concrete next to the house of Sakda Srimat, 60, in Nong Talay, Muang Krabi in Thailand's south. 

 

Suthee, who works for the Ao Nang municipal authority, then showed on a grassy area more clearly how to catch a King Cobra with bare hands. The secret was not to harm the snake, he said.

 

The 10 kilogram snake was bagged and later returned to nature after the incident on Tuesday.

Good luck to him he looked confident enough handling it, even used his bare hands to tie the bag at the end.

I know at least twenty or thirty members who would do better than him.                                                              It's well known. They are much braver than the Thais who are all only a bunch of cowards

Don't count me to those members.... if i see a snake like that I make sure i am gone. That snake was huge.

I believe it's an American word that no country has a monopoly on especially if you look at how the average Thai is dressed at the beach.

We get many small snakes around the house that freak the wife out but are not really a problem. I have helped to capture a large python but I feel my bravado might not be there with a 5 metre cobra, or a 2 metre cobra.

Just telling you in case you wanted me to go up against a snake like that.. id be gone for sure.

 

I am lucky i never saw anything like that here. Gf saw a snake in the park in front of our house. So far I have never seen one ever and I like to keep it that way.

 

The guy is using a trick i use with fishing too.. standing behind the snake and holding it in front of him making it appear bigger. Still its a big snake.
