Thailand Snake Note – All Thailand Snakes

I’ve started a page on which I hope to have listed for identification purposes all the snakes of Thailand, including venomous and non-venomous species listed by name, with photos and some more information. I hope to use this for identification when I’m out in the field because there are many snakes of the same species that have different coloring depending on where in Thailand they are located – and whether they are adults or juveniles.

Apparently there are over 200 species of snake in Thailand. My list now has 98 with photos, and my text list has 130-140 or so. Quite a task to bring all the known snakes into one list – and have photos for them too.

For now the page is password protected as I finish it.

If you have any images of snakes you found in Thailand and wouldn’t mind sharing them with the public – I will credit you with name, email, website, phone – whatever you wish to display.

Cheers!

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.
