Chubby elephant trunk snake sleeps at back of family’s home

Footage shows a chubby elephant trunk snake sleeping at the back of a family’s home in Thailand.

The 6.5ft-long brown reptile was spotted in the yard after the canal had been flooded in Bangkok due to heavy rains on October 17.

After resting, the snake went back to the canal even before the animal catchers reached the house but no one was reported hurt including the reptile.

House owner Dolya Kamonpet said: ‘The snake looks very strange. It was the first time I have seen one. It was not poisonous so we were not very worried about having it around.’
