King Cobra caught making nest

This is the moment wildlife officials caught a female king cobra which had laid 40 eggs next to a family home in Thailand. Somchai Chiangnang, 52, spotted two snakes slithering into the undergrowth near his home in Chachoengsao. He found 13 eggs a few weeks later then called in reptile catchers after fearing his garden would be overrun with the venomous serpents. Footage shows the rescuers pluck the 6ft-long dark black cobra from inside her nest where she had been incubating the eggs. She comes out wriggling furiously before a further 27 eggs - a total of 40 - were gathered up last Friday afternoon. Somchai said: ''I didn't want them in my garden. I covered the hole with a net to stop them getting out. It would be dangerous for my children.'' The cobra was released back into the wild several miles away with her eggs.
