I always thought that coffee is best to wake up with but nothing works as intense as a snake rescue call.
Today at 8:00 I was woken by a phone call, a local villager had a King Cobra at their house.
On the arrival we were directed to the back of the house and found the animal sheltering between stairs and the space beneath the house floor.
With only one entrance to its chosen shelter we decide to block it with our PVC pipe connected to a snake bag. Then with some gentle encouragement the snake moved to our trap and our work was done.
This is 4th King Cobra we rescued within 2.5 weeks.
We released it about 500 m away in forests of Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve. This was really peaceful and patient individual.
