Thailand Snake Notes

Need a Snake Removed in Thailand? Call These Phone Numbers

There are a number of contacts you can call in Thailand if you need to have a snake removed from your home, yard, vehicle, or whatever it is. The first call would probably go to the snake park guys in your area. They are happy to come and get whatever type of snake you have.

These snakes may end up exploited in a Snake Show, eaten, or hopefully let go into the wild but that doesn’t happen often.

The reasons are many, but primarily because the king cobras, monocled cobras, and kraits they keep for the shows eat a snake once a week. They are snake eaters and eat a lot.

My operating procedure for a snake rescue is that we relocate and release all snakes in suitable habitats. We don’t trade snakes, sell them, skin them, pull their gallbladders out, or cut their heads off to drip blood on your newborn infant’s head.

If nobody answers, call the emergency staff using 1669. Please note, they will capture the snake but most will turn them over to the local snake show or keepers to be sold on the open market or used in shows.

All snakes die at the snake shows. In captivity at someone’s home, most die. None are living their best lives.

Much better to set them free!
