Have recently seen several snakes in our garden in North East Thailand.Looks very similar to European grass snake,grey brown with black flecks and a yellow collar round it’s neck.Any ideas as to what it is?
Sounds like a juvenile (hatchling) red-necked keelback snake (R. subminiatus). You can have a look at one I caught here – https://thailandsnakes.com/venomous/rear-fanged/red-necked-keelback-venomous-mildly-dangerous/
Scroll down that page and check out the video. I was holding it. This is before I understood that bites could have serious complications – even death.
