Stomach-churning moment king cobra swallows a baby snake

A stomach-churning moment when a king cobra swallows a baby snake (July 14) in Amphoe Mueang Krabi, Thailand.

The owner, Panya Tulyasuk, fed his deadly pet a smaller cobra at his home. The one-month-old snake, named Joey, is shown devouring the body of the dead cobra, which it finished within a few minutes.

"Joey is still a baby," says Tulyasuk, "so small snakes are the only food he can have. When he's bigger, then we'll feed him with bigger food like chicken meat or frogs."

Joey doesn't eat everyday, one snake can keep him full for up to five days.
