Garland vendors weren’t offering any flowers to a giant cobra that seemingly fell from the sky in central Pattaya.
Sawang Boriboon animal experts were called to remove the 1-meter snake from in front of a commercial building at the Mae Wilai Market Nov. 1. Merchants had the scared reptile surrounded, but kept their distance as the cobra spread its hood with intent to attack.
Pirath Somthasa, 39, said the cobra fell from an upper story of the building, sending flower garland sellers screaming for cover.
The snake was removed with no injuries and released in a more-peaceful area.
