Just a pic – wanted to share this Thailand snake before I forgot….
Rhabdophis subminiatus, Red-necked keelback. Venomous and dangerous.
A boy, 12 yrs old, in Phuket, Thailand was in the Bangkok hospital for 2 weeks after a bite from this snake. The venom specifically attacks the kidneys.
Once thought to be harmless – these snakes are now considered dangerous. Don’t have one as a pet…
