Thailand Snake ID

We no longer offer snake identification services for Thailand. We did so for over 6 years, and it has become overwhelming. There are some resources you can use below to identify the snake you saw. In particular, check out the THAILAND SNAKES PUBLIC FB GROUP, or the Common Snakes pages and ebook because most likely, your snake can be found there.

If you know someone interested in taking over this website, you can email me at the Contact Page and I’ll get back to you. This site and the Facebook forum are for sale.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to compile this. With a lot of time in the Kingdom of Thailand with my wife, I hike and enjoy the rural regions including climbing and hiking deep in country. It is nice to see a farang in country respecting nature and helping contribute to others by spreading knowledge. I am a solo hiker, so it is incumbent upon me to study and be prepared as I have encountered snakes and avoid them, but this will give me the added knowledge I seek. I carry a satellite beacon, good gear and I am a veteran hiker and also a military veteran. Your website is deeply appreciated and I hope at some point we cross paths in LOS as I would be happy to buy you some Chang or dinner. Thank you for being a positive farang too – we need people like you there. Kindest Regards, Gary

    1. Thanks Gary… I’m not always positive, but it seems to go in waves… every few years or so I get the itch to leave and try another spot. Have a family too now, so it’s more difficult to go… We’re creating a free guide for snakes of Thailand at – will let people know there when it’s ready. Cheers man – stay safe…
