Thailand Snake Note – Herping (Herpetology) Trips

I’ve been considering this for a number of months now. I am possibly going to start offering field herping here in Thailand to visitors that want to experience that amazing side of Thailand that I’ve come to know – finding all sorts of snakes and other reptiles – lizards, monitors, as well as scorpions, spiders – or whatever you happen to be into.

Thailand is a herping paradise. There are many places to look for snakes that I know of, and we can also stop off at the snake guy’s place and let you interact with some of the cobras (monocled and king), pythons, Malayan Pit Vipers, Rat Snakes, or whatever they happen to have. I also may be keeping some snakes at the time so you’d have access to those as well.

If you are planning a trip to Thailand to do some herping and, instead of flying blind you’d like me to show you some spots you’ll have the highest probability of success – you should send me an email at: info@thailandsnakes.com and I’ll get back with you right away.

Look for more in the coming weeks as I narrow down what exactly to offer snake enthusiasts and herpetologists on these Thailand herping trips.

  1. I see you’re a snake guy, I have a photo of a lizard I took in Vientiane, Lao PDR. I’m no expert, I was wondering if you or someone you know might be able to ID it?

    Thanks

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.
