A THAI man woke up to a terrifying ordeal when he found a cobra in his boxer shorts.

One of his friends then called animal rescuers, who helped extricate the venomous snake.

In a Facebook video posted by snake rescuer Ner Khwai Tai on June 8, two Snake and Rescue Rayong personnel are seen rescuing the cobra.

The man was sleeping on a cushion on the cement floor in his home in Rayong city, in the eastern part of Thailand, when the serpent slithered its way in.

By the time the rescue team arrived, a crowd had already gathered at the man’s home.

One of the rescuers then used a hook to pull the reptile out.

Ner’s video of the rescue has since been viewed over a million times, with accompanying pun-appropriate comments made.

“There is still one left,” one said, while another one counselled: “Don’t catch the wrong one.”

“Where are the eggs?” someone else asked.

Earlier in February, a man from New York City caught trying to smuggle three Burmese pythons in his pants was sentenced to a year’s probation and fined US$5,000 (RM23,540). — The Straits Times/ANN
