A woman sent me this photo of a snake she said they found on an island in Thailand. Apparently the snake found them, it dropped out of a tree and landed on one of them. Another friend threw it off into the tree.
I don’t recognize the snake. It almost looks like a krait, but the body type is wrong, as is the coloring. The woman said the snake was red and yellow banded and had a red tongue. It was about 14 inches long.

my guess is a well fed hypomelanistic Bungarus toysRus ;-)
It really does seem like that, but I’m giving the woman the benefit of the doubt. If it is a new snake, it’s quite different from any that are presently known in Thailand.
it doesn´t look like any asian snake… Could just be a cornsnake or milksnake (they do appear in every possible colour variation as pets). Maybe somebody set it free there…
Looks like a toy snake to me. :)
Its a plastic snake.
coral or milk snake
