16 king cobra eggs discovered in Si Racha village near religious snake shrine

Si Racha, Chonburi –

Sixteen king cobra eggs have been discovered in a village in Si Racha, according to Si Racha animal control officials.

Local residents found the eggs under a wood pile at a village in the Borwin sub-district earlier this week. The eggs were found near a religious snake shrine, seen in the photo below, leading local residents to believe the eggs were a sign of good luck.

Some local residents said they saw two large king cobras in this area previously. Many days later they found the sixteen king cobra eggs.

According to animal control officials the eggs will be protected and monitored by relevant authorities.

Meanwhile, the discovery of the eggs near a prominent religious shrine dedicated to snakes have brought curious Thai tourists to visit the area over the past several days, praying at the shrine for good luck and, of course, to win the lottery.
