Our fourth gallery of snakes found in Thailand – some submitted by tourists, expats, and locals from around the country.
Gallery #1, Gallery #2, Gallery #3 Adult Malayan Pit Viper in situ, found in a culvert in Krabi, Thailand. A neonate Malayan Pit Viper showing the white-tipped tail it shakes to bring prey closer. Adult Reticulated Python – will it grow to 30 feet long? A Non-venomous Red-tailed Pip Snake (Cylindrophis ruffus) found in Southern Thailand during one of our herping field trips to look for snakes. Really amazing snakes, the Dog-toothed Cat Snake, which I don’t get to see near often enough here in Southern Thailand. These are bird, egg, and lizard eaters primarily – but this one was seen heading for the frog pond. Adult Malayan (Blue) Krait from Thailand. These are common across much of the country, and have a very potent neurotoxic venom. Contact with this krait should be avoided. This just hatched Reticulated Python was only 60 cm long at birth, and can grow to more than 8 meters long. A four meter long Reticulated Python found in Southern Thailand during a night field trip with ThailandSnakes Staff. 2+ meter King Cobra found in Krabi, Thailand. Bungalow room at wildlife resort where internship takes place. Close-up shot. The fang is easily 3 times smaller in diameter and much sharper than the point of the pin. A brightly colored T. venustus waiting in ambush atop a rock. One of Thailand’s black snakes – Keeled Rat Snake (P. carinata).
