My name is Vern Lovic, I’m not a snake expert, I’m a snake ‘enthusiast.’ I’m interested in them. I like to go looking for them and get photos and videos of them. I am sure some of the information on these pages is not perfect, nor have I found any snake resource to be infallible. If you see something wrong – do let me know!

Feel free to write if you have a snake you need identified – we’ll do our best.


Include answers to as many of the following questions as you can for snake reports.

Copy/paste the following into your email to make it easy to answer these:

1. Location in Thailand – city, area the snake was seen

2. Environment found? Near water? In a Tree? On the ground? Under wood or something? On a wall? On the roof?

3. Estimate snake length and girth (thickness) of snake – was it thick as your finger? Arm? Calf? Thigh?

4. Found during night or daylight? What time?

5. If no photo is sent by email please describe the colors of the snake, patterns, anything you can remember.

6. Did the snake attempt to strike at you?

If it bit you, head to the nearest hospital just to make sure. Some deadly snakes have venom with no initial symptoms of envenomation.

  1. I have snakes in my house and I don’t like them. I live near the beach in pattaya by green kind of area a lot of construction near us. Every day birds have been disapearing and I saw one on the balcony swollowing a bird and birds have been falling off trees. I was skate boarding in my house and my board went into the bush and I heard hising at me than ran and slitherd away there green and pretty small. I’m thinking its a bird pit viper but you could still get bit.

    1. Pit vipers are quick to bite yeah. I don’t know any that hiss. However, the Russell’s Viper hisses and you do NOT want to get by that deadly snake. Cheers man, Vern

    1. It doesn’t work for people using VPN sometimes. If you’re on that, use another computer to follow the link to download the book. I haven’t had anyone else other than VPN users tell me they couldn’t download the book. :) Good luck to you…

  3. Hi Vern, Thanks for responding regarding finding an editor for my book.

    It is a general book about travel. It’s not about sex in Thailand or anywhere else. It is a non-fiction book to motivate a person to travel, the mechanics of traveling cheaply and safely. I go into detail about diseases, drugs, things that can sting you, or worse that one may encounter. It is entitled: “Follow the Road that Awaits You. Your Extensive Guide to Intensive Travel”. It is my first book. I don’t expect tons of money to roll in from it but at 370 plus pages with no fluff or photos, I am hopeful that at least a few people will buy it. I probably will be finished writing it in about 2 weeks.

    Yes, please, I would like to contact her to see if she would be interested in editing it.

    Thanks Vern.

  4. Hi Vern,
    Been reading this all morning, currently on Koh Mak, one of my favourite islands,, loved vid of Golden tree snake fighting with Gecks!.. I’ve a few nice photos of those while on my travels a few years ago..
    But I’ve a question for you, it was around 7 years ago and my first trip to Koh Mak, while riding my Scooter past the power plant between the plantations I nearly ran over an appx 4 feet long dirty grey almost black snake… I slowed down as I didn’t want to run over it and was only feet away as it disapeared into the heavy grass beside the plantation.. I’ve seen many Cobras out here, all in captivity and some caught in Isan.. I’ve been told no Cobras on this island but only by a farang.. Is it possible they inhabit Koh Mak.. Thanks for reading

  5. The width of the snake was around 3/4 fingers and spotted late afternoon. It didn’t attempt to strike as head was deep in grass as I past.. Hope this helps more.
    Mike on Koh Mak
