Yellow Spotted Keelback – Thailand Snake Journal

Two of my friends went out and caught what we think is a yellow spotted keelback snake in a pond. It got away from them once, and headed right back into an adjacent water pond.

Thailand keelback snakes love water.

Yellow Spotted Keelback – Venomous – Not Dangerous

These yellow-spotted keelback (Xenochropis flavipunctatus) snakes are rear-fanged and do have venom, however there are no reported deaths from them. The snake would need to bite hard and chew the venom into wound for a minute or so in order to really envenomate a human. Not many humans are willing to let a strong biting snake do that. Don’t you be the first!
