A 13-foot king cobra was pulled from a sewer in Thailand after an hourlong fight with the giant reptile, rescuers said Tuesday.

The daring capture was recorded on video. A man is seen chasing the cobra, the world's largest venomous snake, into a dark drainage pipe. He splashed in muddy water, eventually grabbing the snake's tail and pulling it from the sewer system.

It was one of the biggest cobras ever captured in the Southeast Asian country, rescuers said. The mammoth reptile was released into the wild.
