    I was bitten in my garden in Thailand last year in isaan I was pulling up weeds ,had rubber gloves on the bite was painful like a hot needle bit the glove put 2 puncture marks on my hand about three quarters of inch apart, went to hospital within 45 minutes, tried telling me it was a scorpion but whilst sitting their started going a bit deaf, then my sight went all blurry, then got pain in my chest, they gave me some tablet sent me on my way , but within an hour I started going red blotchy all over ,so went back to hospital, where they put me on intrevinus drip, stayed in over night, got test results back and told me didn’t know what type it was ,have some anti histomine tablet and some other tablets, and was drinking plenty of fluids, but I never sore the snake but I guess it was some sort of viper going by other ones I’ve seen in garden, about as slim as small finger ,and upto a out 18 inch long I’m English guy who’s living in Thailand this was last August 2019 , I’m 57 years old .

      Thanks for the story Carl. Yeah, 2 puncture marks at the same time? Snake. Viper or cobra.Did you have blood clotting problems – bleeding a lot? Did you have a black mark at the bite site? Did you have any trouble breathing? Nausea?

    Well that pretty much cemented my decision to NOT move to Thailand. Thank you!

      You’ll almost certainly not run into many snakes that can harm you. Even fewer that will. It really isn’t that bad in most places.
