This is the heart-stopping moment: A snake catcher kisses a wild king cobra on the lips. Rescue worker Panya Tulyasuk, 44, and his team caught the deadly reptile after receiving an emergency call in Krabi, southern Thailand on August 8. They then let the 10ft-long serpent loose after taking it to a temple near the organisation's offices. The group filmed as Panya un-bagged the king cobra which slithered across the concrete ground before going face-to-face with him. Icecool Panya held his nerve and placed his open mouth over the reptile's deadly jaws.
