An injured three metre king cobra has been caught in Krabi today, the fourth king cobra caught in the past month in Krabi.

Krabi Pitak Pracha rescue workers were notified that a snake was hiding inside a house in Krabi City.

A rescue worker used a snake snare to catch the 3 metre reptile.

The owner of the house says there are some chickens and birds at the house. The king cobra might have been looking for some food to eat as the weather is getting dry. Rescue workers have taken the snake for treatment before being released to the wild.

In the past eleven days, Krabi Pitak Pracha rescue workers have caught four big king cobras.

A five metre king cobra was caught inside a restaurant in Krabi by plucky rescue workers last week.

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.
