A Thai man has reportedly married a 10ft long white cobra whom he believed to be his dead girlfriend reincarnated.

Images of the unidentified man and his snake were sent in by Worranan Sarasalin, who also displayed a picture of him sitting by a lake with the animal.

Other pictures showed him watching TV, hanging out at the gym and playing a board game with the serpent whom many believed to be dangerous.

According to reports, the man has been warned against keeping the pet but he has refused to yield to the advice.

Sarasalin said, "He's well known to be the man who lives with a snake.

"He had been warned several times that it is dangerous but he still carries on."

According to reports, he married the snake which used to be a pet because he thought it shared a resemblance with his late girlfriend.
