Need a Snake Removed in Thailand? Call These Phone Numbers

A rescued king cobra from Ao Nang, Krabi, Thailand.
Sam Davies from the UK rescued this 2.5m king cobra from a home in the Nong Thale area of Ao Nang where it was eating a radiated rat snake. He released it into the nearby rainforest.

There are a number of contacts you can call in Thailand if you need to have a snake removed from your home, yard, vehicle, 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.

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.

Phuket Kathu, Thalang, call the Wisarut Jaiton Kusoldharm Rescue Foundation: 076-246301 or 076-246599.

My operating procedure for a snake rescue is that we relocate and release all snakes in suitable habitat. We don’t trade snakes, sell them, skin them, pull their gall bladders 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, most die.

Much better to set them free!

    • Contact the police or ambulance personnel. Most will know the name and number for a snake catcher in BKK.

  3. What about snake bites in Thailand? Do local hospitals hold anti-venom? Or is is just main or specialist hospitals. Knowing this would save valuable time if bitten, particularly in a rural area.

    • Many public hospitals hold the antivenom for various species. If they don’t have it, they can request it from another hospital that does have it. Mostly public hospitals have it.
