Off-screen action proved scarier to an 80-year-old Sattahip woman when a 1.5-meter-long snake slithered through her living room while she was watching television.
Chaluay Imduasuk called Sawang Rojthummasathan Foundation animal-rescue officers Aug. 30 after the snake disappeared deep inside her two-story house. After a search, officers found the green tree snake hiding in a wall crevice.
Chaluay had asked rescuers to help move beds for her and her daughter to another house, but when they discovered the snake was not poisonous they decided to stay put.
About 4 cm. in diameter, the green snake was released back into the jungle.
Mae Chaluay looks on as one of the rescuers holds up the snake for the cameras.
