God bless victims of thailand.
Lots of people lost their houses because of the flood,
Students can't go to school, worker become jobless, hawker unable to start their business.
and now 400 crocodiles escape from the zoo and 15 deadly green mambas escapes from the Nonthaburi's Pak Kret district on Tuesday night.
Officials say the highly venomous snakes include two adults - 2 metres long - and 13 one-metre-long young ones.

         Anyone spotting the snakes must alert the Zoo and Wildlife Veterinary Society of Thailand via hotline 1362 or the Jor Sor 100 radio station at (02) 711 9160.

        Chisanu Tiyacharoensri, vice president of the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation of Thailand, said green mambas were yellowish-green and larger than green snakes. He urged people to stay away from the snakes and be careful not to be bitten because there was no serum available in Thailand at present to counteract their venom.

        Chisanu said the victim of a mamba bite would feel drowsy and could die in 20 minutes. If he or she survived, the victim would be on respiratory aid while waiting for antivenin to come from South America in two or three days.

        For first aid in case of snakebite to a limb, Chisanu said the wound should be cleaned gently with soap and water, and a piece of cloth should be wrapped tightly at least 7 centimetres above the bite. A second piece should be wrapped 7cm above the first. The victim should lie down before being quickly transported to hospital.

        He warned not to squeeze or cut the wound.
