We saw something very similar in our house. The tokays ecaped, but one died of the snakes venom, and a fiew days later the cat had killed the snake:(

What an amazing video. On my first visit to Thailand in 2012 we went to the snake farm in Bangkok. We were about to leave when my wife noticed a commotion in the leaf litter just outside the wire mesh fence – i.e. outside of the snake farm grounds, on the next door property. Looking closer we saw it was one of these snakes (which we could identify because there was a very similar one in one of the snake farm terraria!) wrapped around a big tokay, which was squirming its last. Too bad the tokay didn’t have a buddy to help out, but I guess snakes have to eat. After three visits to Thailand these are still the only wild snake and the only tokay I’ve seen in Bangkok.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
