A video of a snake devouring a 24-foot-long iguana whole within five minutes has gone viral.

The Golden Tree Snake was filmed swallowing a reptile on the 14th green of The Royal Golf and Country Club, in Bangkok, during daylight, and the footage has been obtained by the Mirror Online.

The venomous snake can be seen crushing its victim with its jaws before devouring its prey, and the footage has astonished staff and regulars at the golf club.

Murray Darling, a corporate managing director who spotted the incident, said: "My golf was bad but I was having a better day than this poor lizard on the 14th green.

"I thought it was a small monitor at first but I think it was more iguana-like. The snake had it fully under control.

"The iguana head never came out from the snake's mouth in the five minutes we watched. I was having a horrible round but sunk my only one putt of the day to ensure I got off the green swiftly.

"The snake was going to win. We left and let him enjoy his dinner."

A dozen of the eight-legged sea creatures were spotted on Ceredigion beach on the Welsh coast on Friday crawling on to the shore, the BBC has reported.

Although it is uncommon for octopuses to be seen on land, it is particularly rare for there to be around 25 in one place.

Brett Stones, who runs dolphin tours off the coast, said: "It was a bit like an end of day's scenario.

"There were probably about 20 or 25 on the beach. I have never seen them out of the water like that."

Brett also said he tried to move as many as he could back into the water, but the next day he found many dead ones washed-up on the beach.

Research has found more than 20 per cent of women prefer watching TV than having sex.

According to a new survey by Mortar London which was commissioned by Freeview to mark its 15th anniversary it has been discovered that watching a game of football, politics, even a show on religion, as well as eating chocolate are all favoured over a steamy session in the bedroom.

The survey has also found that 61 per cent of TV watchers make major life decisions, such as quitting a job or getting married, after watching TV.

Guy North, MD of Freeview, said: "TV has the power to transport us anywhere we want when we're stressed, cheer us up when we're sad and it can even bring seven to 70-year-olds together in a shared TV viewing moment.

"When you consider how much time we spend watching TV and how our viewing habits have changed with the rise of catch-up and on-demand, TV remains a fundamental part of our everyday life.

"Its ability to influence decision-making is quite astonishing."
