Thank you for taking the time to compile this. With a lot of time in the Kingdom of Thailand with my wife, I hike and enjoy the rural regions including climbing and hiking deep in country. It is nice to see a farang in country respecting nature and helping contribute to others by spreading knowledge. I am a solo hiker, so it is incumbent upon me to study and be prepared as I have encountered snakes and avoid them, but this will give me the added knowledge I seek. I carry a satellite beacon, good gear and I am a veteran hiker and also a military veteran. Your website is deeply appreciated and I hope at some point we cross paths in LOS as I would be happy to buy you some Chang or dinner. Thank you for being a positive farang too – we need people like you there. Kindest Regards, Gary

when is someone going to do “snakial” recognition as an app ? as in facial recog, ok, should be easy to do once the database of identified patterns is made, take a photo and then RLF (run like fuck) I’ve got coders working for me but they are mainly meteorological I live in thailand and I dont like to see harmless snakes immediately killed, but if you are bitten well that’s another story – one I hope not to have to write…

best wishes thanks for the guide

I have a 1 x meter snake ( probable longer ) in my garden in Khongchai Kalasin. Grey brownish in colour and quite slim and very agile. My wife is petrified as our 2 x dogs. Question:

Do you think could be venomous? What do I do next?

I been trying to find the snake I came across yesterday in the national park in Chai Prakhan.
It was black but had bright green and blue patches on it’s back going left to right but it was blue to green and blue to black and green to blue and green to black. It was about 40cm long, was crossing the road bout 1/3 of it’s body (tail end) was to the left like a u shape it would move up like a push then it would slither forward.
Trying to find out what this snake was as I can not find it anywhere.

Hi Mr Vern,
my name is Rob, I’m former special Ops and live with Asian since I was kid.
Can you please identify that snake ?
I didn’t even try to catch his face, it’s size is roughly 180cm.
I let it go, it was really nice colour as shadow gray/anthracite turned to blue night.
location is Kanchanaburi.
its leveraged land many rocks with thousands of low rise Tamarind trees and 2 billion litres of open air reservoir.

The owner who’s high rank law enforcement to secure the land wilderness included. I want to find alternative especially about snakes.

Maybe because we banned pesticides and herbicides we have huge wilderness populations as birds nest, frog, black scorpions big as my hand and big centipedes.

I try finding solutions for snakes leaving the land or just across it.
I found online blue granular who supposed to avoid snakes to stay in the property. Does it works or do you have manageable solutions or efficiency product?
Or maybe other animals which can be introduced and makes any reptiles leaving or across this land ?

Thank you for your time.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
