A five-metre king cobra was caught inside a restaurant in Krabi by rescue workers on Wednesday.
Krabi Pitak Pracha rescue workers found staff and customers waiting outside the restaurant after the king cobra was found inside the kitchen.
A rescue worker used a snake snare to catch the reptile after about 20 minutes. It is believed to be about 15 years old.
A 20kg, five-metre king cobra was also caught by a rescue worker with his bare hands in Krabi last month.
