Amonrat Thammaphan of the Ruamjai Rescue Foundation told The Phuket News, “At 10:30am local people said they saw a big snake move under a taxi so they called us to help.

“We arrived at the scene to find a taxi parked in front of the Mandarava Resort and Spa. People were crowded around the taxi along with the taxi driver,” he said.

“Our team spent five minutes getting the snake from the car’s wheel arch. It was five metres in length.

“This King Cobra is now in our care. In the evening we will measure and weigh it and we then plan to release it at the Mai Thao Sip Song mountain in Kathu,” Mr Amonrat added.

An article about a 5 meter cobra and some clowns have nothing better to do then to start talking about taxi driver waiting for customer.Ridiculous!

It proves there are to many taxis and tuk tuks on Phuket island. They not mend to stand still that much time. Are they?
But with their rip off charges they can live on 2 passengers drives a day, rest of the day, lay down in their salas, and, yes facilitate snakes. Funny.

Of course if the taxi was actually working - instead of parked up in front of a hotel in “its spot” for the day a big snake wouldnt have time to wrap itself around the wheel .....
