Well, we’re going to need to cut down or cut out the herping trips in the winter months – Dec, Jan, Feb. There’s just no point, as it’s too cold for the snakes and they go into a sort of hibernation. The cool snakes do anyway. There are golden tree snakes, wolf snakes, rat snakes, and the occasional python around – but, that’s really about it.
It’s slim pickings for snakes in Thailand at the moment. Don’t book a trip to Thailand during these months if you’re into snake hunting because you’ll see less during this time of year than any other. The number of emails I’ve been getting to ask me to help identify snakes that were seen in Thailand – has dwindled considerably. I get one every 3-4 days now, instead of daily.
