A 20 kilogram, 5 metre king cobra has been caught by a skilled rescue worker with his bare hands in Krabi.

Ao Nang rescue workers were notified that a king cobra was hiding near a local house in Krabi City. It took about 10 minutes for rescue workers to find the king cobra.

37 year old Sutee Naewhart, who found the cobra used his bare hand to pull the king cobra out of its hiding place by its tail.

At first it shook off his captor and tried to get away but Khun Sutee took a second go and within 20 minutes had the cobra in hand – his bare hands.

Khun Sutee says, “It not difficult to catch a snake with bare hands but we need to think about safety first. I caught this snake with my bare hands as I don’t want to hurt it with a snake snare. I have had lots of practice to catch snakes. With no experience you can die by snake bite.”

A 20 kilogram, 6 metre king cobra was caught in Trang by rescue workers the day before.

A baby Risso’s Dolphin has been rescued after being found on Railay Beach in Krabi on Sunday.

Officials at the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) were notified that the baby dolphin was found of the east end of Railay Beach.

The DMCR says that the species is a baby Risso’s dolphin. This one is 250 centimetres long and weighs about 100 kilograms. The dolphin was weak and unable to swim by itself.

Wounds have been found around its head which marine staff believe was caused from being battered as it washed up onto the beach by waves.

The dolphin was taken to the Phuket Marine Biology Centre (PMBC) where it’s receiving love, attention and further treatment.

Risso’s dolphin is the only species of dolphin in the genus Grampus. It is commonly known as the Monk dolphin among Taiwanese fishermen. Some of the closest related species to these dolphins include: pilot whales, pygmy killer whales, melon-headed whales, and false killer whales.
