A terrified 42 year old mother Thanapoom Lekyen who found out that a snake has been lurking under her teenage sons bed recall the ordeal.
According to her she had found the cat outside under the window ledge with so much bite wounds when she entered her son’s bedroom in the morning to find a shiny scales under the mattress of her sons bed.
Fortunately her son, Nong who is 13 hear old had been sleeping in her room the night before and avoided being killed by the serpent.
She said: “I woke up in the morning and saw the dead cat outside with bite marks on it.
“Then I knew there was a problem and I shivered and my stomach was feeling sick. I was scared.
“I looked in my son’s bedroom and screamed when I saw something moving under the bed.
“I think about what might have happened and cry. My son was very lucky because he did not sleep in the room that night. ‘
“There must have been some guardian angel watching over him. He fell asleep with me and I decided to let him stay in that room instead of go to his normal room.
“The snake came in through his window. If he was sleeping in the bed, he’s only small and it could have killed him.”
After her terrifying discovery, Lekyen called the local animal rescue centre which dispatched Nattapon Boonmee with a pole and a lasso to catch the snake.
He said: “The snake was average size but very, very aggressive. My hand was bleeding from where it bit me just a little bit.
“A more powerful bite would be very, very dangerous.”
Rescuers were eventually able to pick the snake inside a canvas bag and released back into the wild unharmed near the family’s home in Chaochoengsao, Thailand.
