So many times I’ve been looking for technical information about snakes in Thailand and the search engine turns up an abstract for a published journal article that is only available to subscribers of the journal, or someone that wants to pay $30 or more to get a copy of it. I think most snake enthusiasts don’t have the money to spend on buying access to publications which should be free for the world – so here are some free publications, full papers you can download and read without going broke.

I am always keen to add research about Thailand snakes as it is found. If you have a recommendation, please send me the link. If you know anyone that is looking for a reptile internship – someone very eager to learn more about the herpetofauna of Southern Thailand, send them to this page.

Hello! Wer are two herpetologists from germany and we´re going to spend 3 weeks on Koh Jum island in november. Can you tell us something about the herpetofauna over there ? With kind regards
Mazze and anne
Don’t know anything. I’ve had only a couple reports… python (retic), and tree snake. Do let me know what you find after you’re done over there!
