Thailand Snake Stories

Not a new ebook, sorry to say, but just going back and forth with a guy that worked in Thailand a long time ago and wanted to share a couple stories with me. I shared one back. Thought I’d share it with you all. Thanks to Ray for letting me post his emails. His 1st […]

Thailand Snakes from December to March?

The dry months in Thailand are not usually productive times for herping, or snake expeditions of any sort. It’s just too hot and rain too scarce. What snakes might you find in Thailand between the months of December through March? Not many, but there are still some snakes out there if you know where to […]

Steps to Bagging a Small (< 2m) Venomous Snake

I just got a Facebook message from a friend that was out finding snakes last night in Taiwan. He asked how I go about bagging dangerous snakes when I’m alone. I gave him this message: Good question… I usually do this: 1. Grab the snake anywhere – usually just before mid body, I leave the […]

Trip to Ubon Ratchathani, Not Intending to Snake Hunt

I just returned from a trip to Ubon in the northeast. Though I didn’t do any active snake hunting, in two days I saw two snakes. The first was a striped keelback that I passed on the road, I thought it was hit by the wheel of a motorbike. I circled around and found it […]

How Common Are Snakes in Thailand?

I get a lot of comments at my Youtube videos – people asking whether snakes are all over Thailand. They’re worried that they are going to be seeing snakes at every turn. Nothing could be further from the truth. In most cases, anyway. There are some people that write me on this site for Snake […]

Ptyas Carinatus – Keeled Rat Snake

These are great snakes. They get big. This one is 2.75m. This is another one that hasn’t calmed down since being caught. They are rat snakes, so that’s what they prefer. Unfortunately we don’t see many rats around this area so I couldn’t catch one to feed it to him if I wanted to. If […]

Striped Bronzeback Snake – Thailand – Dendrelaphis caudolineatus

I had a juvenile striped bronzeback a little while back – video here. These are fast, tree climbing snakes that are active during the daytime and are frequently found in residential areas. They love frogs and lizards, from what I’ve seen them eat. These snakes are exceptionally beautiful. They are rather nervous – meaning, they […]

Golden Tree Snake – Chrysopelea ornata ornatissima – Common in Thailand

These are like the road runner of snakes – they are super fast, thin, and agile. They can climb trees and bushes faster than any other snake I’ve seen, and they are wicked fast on the strike. Yesterday I saw one strike so fast I couldn’t see it. That’s fast. These are very common snakes […]

Othriophis taeniurus helfenbergeri (Helfenbergs Racer) Found in Krabi, Thailand

Some herpetologists believe this snake only occurs north of Krabi. I found one today – a juvenile, dead on the road (sea level), at bottom of Khao Phanom Bencha mountain chain where it ends near Krabi Town (Krabi Noi). Here’s the link to Joachim’s page. Also saw another Malayan Krait – a juvenile this time. […]

Name This Thailand Snake

See if you can name this Thailand snake – it is in a plastic bottle and I stuck the lens right up at the opening and fired a few off. For many of you this will be child’s play, I’ll kill the comments on this page. You can write me if you think you know […]

Thailand Snakes

 

Cobras in the HOUSE!

Welcome to Thailand Snakes…

Thailand has 200+ snake species with over 60 of them - venomous. I created this site as a way to educate Thais and visitors to Thailand about snakes. Many people kill the snakes they see in Thailand, while in many cases - they are non-venomous and completely harmless. With this site I hope to give people a better idea what is harmful and what isn't.

Browse the many snake photos and videos here so you can identify snakes you see on your porch, in your bed, or underfoot.

If you have been bitten by a snake - go to a hospital FIRST. Don't waste time looking it up on the internet. With some snakes you need to have medical help as fast as possible. With others you have some time. I know a Thai man whose brother died in less than 10 minutes from a snake bite.

There are venomous (some say 'poisonous' erroneously) snakes everywhere in Thailand. Friends have had cobras in their kitchen, and others had kraits in the garage. Vipers love bushes and trees near water and walkways.

Bookmark this site so you can quickly identify snakes you have seen. Notice the variety of venomous and non-venomous snakes in Thailand - and realize that they come in all sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns.
