  1. Yes it is a Mangrove Cat Snake. They look scary but I guess won’t kill. I lived in Satun which has lots of mangrove and saw only one dead one far from the mangrove areas. A friend sent me a photo of a black and white snake and labelled it as a Ngu Prong Thong, or a Mangrove Snake. I think she was too afraid to think it was a Blue Krait. Satun was great to see all the snakes, most dead along the roadside where rubber plantation workers tossed them.
