PHUKET:-- A female tourist in Nai Harn received a nasty shock yesterday (Nov 16) when she returned to her villa to be confronted by an angry three-metre cobra.

 

The tourist and her female companion had left one of the sliding glass doors open at their villa as they went for an evening swim in the pool.

 

On returning to the villa one of the ladies saw the snake who had entered the room. She immediately closed the door before the snake could leave and ran to seek help from the villa duty worker.

The ones that come up thru the toilet scare me.  Difficult to fully relax at times. I am constantly looking down when I sit on the toilet especially if in a country area.  Just ready to jump off of the head and fangs pop up.

1. The venom affects the respiratory centers in the brain, causing respiratory arrest and cardiac failure.

2. Yes, two types.

 “The snake was very agitated and kept attacking the workers,” said the DDPM-Rawai worker.

 

I think they first started to suspect that the snake was angry when it repeatedly attacked them ...
