Video: Five meter King Cobra drops in for a bite to eat at southern Thai restaurant!

A video on YouTube from Thai Rath showed the snake catchers from the Krabi Phitak Pracha foundation get to grips with a five meter long King Cobra. 

 

The snake had scared patrons at the Ban Suan Khao Khram restaurant who were all waiting outside when the foundation team arrived. 

 

It took only 20 minutes for the experts to bag the beast who had taken up temporary residence in the kitchen.

 

It was reckoned to be about a 15 year old specimen. 

 

It was returned to nature after capture.

A big, big fella. Very glad not to stumble into that in the middle of the night stumbling home after a few wobbly pops.

Magnificent creature. Great that he (she) was returned to the wild for another 15 years +.

Thais are lucky that there are rescue services like this instead of just killing the snake like I would have done.

And what if it's late at night and the rescue chaps are asleep ?...Sorry, but I would also rather have it killed rather then hissing around my bed...:sorry:

I have read often that King  cobras are not very agressive

So "returned to nature" means stepping out in back of the restaurant a few meters? That's what it looked like. I would have thought they would drive it to a remote location.
