In 2016, a man went viral when it was revealed that he married his pet cobra.

Warranan Sarasalin from Kanchanaburi, west Thailand, told news outlets about a neighbor who lost his beloved girlfriend five years prior. The latter is apparently a local legend who is known for his love for a cobra. Bystanders often spot him taking the snake everywhere he goes, treating it like one would a partner.

He never stays away from the snake.

Warranan Sarasalin added that the man appears to take care of the snake “very well.” He tries not to judge because “true love is true love.”

As a practitioner of Buddhism, the man believes in the cycle of rebirth and that people can be reincarnated as animals. He stated that the 10-foot long snake “bares a striking resemblance” to his deceased girlfriend.
