Python molurus bivittattus – Burmese Python

Burmese Python - Southern Thailand (Python molurus bivittatus)

Not the Indian Python or the Indian Rock Python, but, the Burmese Python… Python molurus bivittatus.

These snakes are common in southern Thailand. Their coloring can be more on the lighter side or darker side, this one is rather dark. These snakes can get very large – approaching 30 feet. In the Everglades in southern Florida, once captive Pythons like this Burmese, have been let loose and have thrived in the hot climate. They are now attacking alligators and other wildlife, not to mention the occasional human being.

The Burmese Pythons have a temperament that is somewhat more even-keeled than the reticulated Pythons – in general. There are also some very keyed-up Burmese Pythons that will take a hunk out of your flesh if you get too close. Here at the snake park they have about 8 Pythons – 3 of which can be handheld.

If you come to Thailand, the chance that you would see a python in the wild is VERY small. You would need to go looking for them. They love living in trees during the day and are active at night eating anything from frogs to goats.

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.
