Thailand Venomous Snake Skulls – Fangs, Dentition

If you haven’t yet been to the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute (Red Cross Snake Farm) in Bangkok, it is well worth a trip. The fee, 200 THB for adults and 50 THB for children is reasonable.

Though I don’t like the idea of seeing snakes in captivity for any reason, I go anyway because it’s there. I just don’t see the world changing to a snake friendly place, an animal friendly place, anytime soon.

I figure by going to see the snakes there I’ll learn something and my curiosity will be sparked. I figure I’ll spend more time looking for snakes and documenting them at this site for others to learn about. Without keeping them in a tank.

Anyway – here they are, some of the most venomous snakes in Thailand – their skulls, and in some cases full skeletons.
