If you live in Thailand, you might want to pull back the covers and inspect your bed before climbing in. If you are not careful, there could be a nasty, not to mention deadly, surprise waiting for you. Snakes in your bed are not trying to be maniacal. To them, under the covers is just another good, dark, warm place to stay hidden for a while.
Down the hall, Lovic’s friend’s bedroom was the next place he examined. At first, everything looked fine. Yet, he wanted to be certain the place his friend slept was snake-free. A venomous snake bite is a rude awakening, but it could also be your last. As he stepped into the center of the room, he had a thought.
Confirming the Hall Is Snake-free
Walking up and down the long hall, Lovic wanted to be sure every single snake had been securely bagged. He didn’t want to leave a room with the chance that a baby snake might still be lurking somewhere in the dark. It seemed like there were dozens of them! A job like this could not be left half done.
This family was in some serious hot water, and Lovic was their only hope of safety. He also was concerned about his own safety. These snakes were small but lethal. A slip of the snake hook and one of those tiny venomous reptiles could slither lickety-split up the hook and onto his arm.
A Meticulous Search and Seizure
More than his own safety, Lovic worried about his friend and the family members who lived there. They had no defense against the deadly cobras, and at least he knew how to handle the small reptiles. Even as a trained professional, Lovic knew that he was in a dangerous situation and that he had to act with precision and calmness.
Outside, he found them wrapped around pipes. Several more had stowed away inside some garbage cans. They were everywhere. He continued his meticulous investigation. There was no way he was going to leave the house if his friend remains at risk.
Are There Any Snakes on the Bed?
Just in case, Lovic pulled back the comforter and took a peek. Shocked, he found not one, not two, but at least three snakes inside his friend’s bed! As soon as the light hit the creepy crawlers, they slithered like mad back into the sheets. He grabbed each one and bagged them — one, two, three.
Lovic strongly suggested his friend stay at a motel. Although he had done his very best, and an absolutely thorough job, just to be sure, he urged his friend and his family to sleep elsewhere for the night. With a snake infestation as severe as this one, it was better to be safe than sorry.
The Work Was Far From Done
Finishing up in the bedroom, Lovic spied one more baby cobra. He caught sight of its tail as it was making a quick escape, scrambling away under the door. In a flash, he snagged it with the snake tongs and secured it inside the bag.
The little wriggler thought it could get away and escape the fate of his siblings, but in the end, it was captured as well. Those little guys were quick, but Lovic was quicker. As far as he could tell, the bedroom was clear of snakes. Still, who knew just how many more were waiting around every corner?
