Thailand Snakes Poll – Whose Tail is This?

Whose tail is this?

Leave your answers in the comments section – answer – whose tail is this?

The first one to get it correct will get use of my “The Snake Charmer” – ebook on Kindle whenever Kindle enables borrowing other people’s ebooks. Michael Cota cannot win because I sent him this image already.

      Well, that didn’t take long!! You’re supposed to say, “Bungarus candidus” or Laotian Wolf Snake or something! You’re good!

      Do you have a Kindle? If yes, I’ll lend you my “The Snake Charmer” Book – the one about famous herpetologist Joe Slowinski. Just let me know.

    Hello, thank you for lending opportunity of “The snake charmer”. It would be really great and I would appreciate to read it. I am a kind of hobby thaland snake fan and study your great homepage alot. I love it. By the way I saw the tail and I thought about bungarus fasciatus maybe a varity more ocker yellow but bungarus has a “linear” triangle shape and is so great glossy on the skins surface… Then I detect the small thorns in the top and I thougt it is a leguan. Funny…
    Have a nice day. P.S.:When do think a report of the daboia russelli siamensis could be lunched. A really deadly beautiful….

      Yes, the scales on the iguana were a giveaway. I kept trying to crop the picture to be harder to guess but I think you are too good. The daboia russelli siamensis is not native to where I am in Southern Thailand – but I have a page I’m editing for it now. Will have to find a photo to use for it too. I have about 45 pages in “draft mode” right now. Do you have an image of that viper?

    A Physignathus cocincinus would me more apropos.

    • Vern says:

      Damn me. That’s what I get for listening to the snake guys… I must have had 6 people tell me “Iguana”. Thanks for the heads-up. “Chinese Water Dragon” for the non-biologists.

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.
