Snake handlers used large candles to catch a large cobra that was hiding under a man's house. Jirasak Chuenarom, 38, was climbing down the steps of his home in Chachoengsao, central Thailand when he saw the 6ft cobra coiled user the staircase on September 16. The startled snake swiftly took refuge underneath his raised cement home so he called the rescue team. After spotting Jirasak's single storey home, the specialist knew the task wouldn't be easy. They attempted to scare the cobra out by spraying water in using a hose, and also drilled into the steel where the snake was hiding but to no avail. The neighbours also came to assist in the mission by spraying pesticides into the snake's hiding spot, but it showed no sign of budging. Rescue team members then bought two medium-sized Buddhist lent candles. The specialist lit the candles up and began to heat up the cobra's location. The jet-black cobra couldn't stand the heat and crawled out of the basement. The team quickly grabbed the snake's head. Jirasak said: "I was so shocked when I saw the snake crawling past the stairs. I took out the torch to scare it and called the team right away." The captured cobra was released back into the forest.
This is the shocking moment a motorcycle rider and his pillion passenger slammed into the ground when a speeding car nudged them at a junction.

The suffered only minor injuries and were able to stand right after their motorcycle was hit. Paramedics took them to a nearby hospital to receive treatment for grazes after concerned onlookers called for help. The police are now searching for the silver car that fled the scene after the incident and encourages anyone with information about the driver to report to them.
An 8ft long king cobra was caught after hiding inside the engine of a pickup truck. The shocked owner was about to drive to work when he saw the snake's tail poking out of the side of his parked vehicle outside his house in Nakhon Ratchasima, northeastern Thailand on September 15. The deadly reptile was startled upon seeing the man and darted deep inside the engine so he called the animal rescuers for help. The drive said: "I tried to catch the snake but it was huge and went deep inside my car. I called for help because I was frightened that it would hurt me, it was so big." Using a flash light, rescuers from the Sawangwitcha Pakchong volunteer team first searched for the snake using a flash light. The cobra had tucked itself deep into the car's engine so they had to use a rod to pull it out from the gap of the rear wheel. The serpent was finally caught after almost an hour of searching before it was placed inside a sack. Rescuers brought the snake with them to be released later into the wild.
This is the amazing moment freshwater Irrawady dolphins were seen swimming again in a river in Indonesia. The extremely rare sighting of the endangered Irrawadies delighted locals living near Segati Langgam river in Riau province. In 2017, one of the dolphins was found mysteriously dead in the province. The dolphins were not seen again in the area until September 15. One of the villagers, Agus, said they could hardly believe it when they saw the dolphins swimming close to land. He said: "At first I thought they were just large fish. We were excited when we realise they are Irrawady dolphins." The dolphins were reported roaming the river several times over the previous days. Residents visited the river and took photos of the creatures, but officers from the Riau Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BBKSDA) reminded the locals not to disturb them. Head Suharyono said: "Please maintain distance from the river to avoid scaring the animals and avoid interacting with them or giving them food." The BBKSDA plans to set up a team in the river to study the rare animals. Irrawady dolphins inhabit Cambodia's Mekong river, which is connected to the river systems in Indonesia and other regions in southeast Asia. These dolphins have a bulging forehead and short beak, and an estimated 92 individuals remain in their population.
