Snakes on a Plane!

Indeed there are snakes on the grassy planes surround Hutchinson Technology's factory outside of Ayutthaya Thailand.

This juvenile king cobra was found outside the factory on Wednesday. 

King cobras are increadably dangerous.  A good bite can kill an adult human in 15 minutes.  The nearest hospital is 20 minutes away.  Although the the one shown above is quite dead (thank you security guards) none of the Thai staff had any interest in going anywhere near this thing!

A slightly larger juvenile cobra was killed by our plant security guards a few months ago.  This one is about 5 feet in lenght.  Adults typically reach 12 feet in length.
