Rain Forest Snakes in Thailand

Thailand has dry parts and some geographical areas covered by tropical rain forest in which snakes thrive. In southern Thailand there are numerous places that can be considered rain forest like Phuket (virtually the entire island), Koh Samui, Koh Tao, Koh Phangnan, There are vast forests stretching between Surat Thani – Trang – Nakhon si Thammarat – and Phangna.

Rain forests support a variety of animal life that snakes rely on for sustenance. Frogs are probably the ultimate snake food, and most snakes eat them when they can find them.

While one can find all sorts of snakes in the rainforest there are a few that are very commonly found:

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.
