A man has married his snake because he believes that it is his dead girlfriend coming to life in the body of the snake. According to reports, he believes that the 10ft long cobra bears a striking resemblance to his dead lover.
The unnamed loverboy is said to have been totally heartbroken when his girlfriend passed away five years ago. But when he spotted a snake with a resemblance to the girl, he instantly felt better as he believes she has come back to his life as the serpent.
He spends his day with the large cobra and enjoys its company.
The Buddhist believe that people can be reincarnated as animals so this is what gave the loverboy hope.
Pictures have emerged of him living a happy life with the snake. They eat together, drink together and even watch TV together.
"He never stays away from the snake . He takes it everywhere he goes or even while he's sleeping," the man who released the photos said.

He evidently believes his snake-wife should never leave his side as these pictures suggest.
