Othriophis taeniurus helfenbergeri (Helfenbergs Racer) Found in Krabi, Thailand

Othriophis taeniurus helfenberger Helfenbergs Racer, found in Krabi, Thailand at the base of a mountain.
New range for this Othriophis taeniurus helfenberger? Krabi, Thailand

Some herpetologists believe this snake only occurs north of Krabi. I found one today – a juvenile, dead on the road (sea level), at bottom of Khao Phanom Bencha mountain chain where it ends near Krabi Town (Krabi Noi).

Here’s the link to Joachim’s page.

Also saw another Malayan Krait – a juvenile this time. It crawled across my friend’s wife’s foot last night. What a way to find a snake, right. Especially a deadly snake like that one is.

Many snakes out and about right now in Thailand. I’m getting MANY requests for identification and answering them as fast as I can – so please be patient. I’m behind by about a week in answering ID questions.

Again, much better if you can send photos by email to info[{at]}thailandsnakes.com – I answer immediately that way.

Cheers!
