    The one eyed trouser is a terrifying sight in Pattaya especially if you weren't expecting it

    We cornered a 'greenish colored snake at home (Samphran) that I thought due to its color must have been a harmless tree snake.....but.... locals informed me that it was a viper whos bite could make you quite sick. Luckily before we dumped him his head had fallen off.

    We had a lot of wolf snakes at the ranch that would find their way into the house, which was always a kill scenario. One day I killed what I thought was a wolf snake with a farmer's help but it ended up being a yellow banded krait. When a snake is moving, it is darn hard to tell what kind it is.

    There are a few snakes at the MIL home, long thin brownish, apparently harmless,
    They sure get out of your way in a hurry, one went into a concrete drain, I looked as to where it went, had a look, damned if I could see where it went.. not that I was going to hurt it, it has more right than myself to be there, beautiful but.

    Firecrackers are quite good deterrents, just throw a couple loud banging crackers into sewage, you will be amazed what comes out... Method tested.

    Had a few Golden Tree Snakes in my garden same as the OP. Quite feisty little critters, agile and quick too.

    Dunno if this link has been posted yet, good guide to snakes common in Thailand and the region: Snakes common of Thailand

    One of these golden tree snakes went from a tree in the yard to under my roof yesterday afternoon. He was not a little fellow like the one in the OP. I've heard him bumping around in the ceiling since and some little squeals. Bye bye to my squirrel in the ceiling problem.

    Save opening a new thread I've put this here. This snake was caught in my neighbours house first thing this morning. Thankfully it's a constrictor so they never killed it and just took it off for release in the rice paddies.

    was sat watching tv in my open air bit when i see something slithering up the wall. wasn't sure if i just imagined it or not so tried to have a look withut getting within a few metres of it

    eventually i saw it as it went into one of the roof pipe things.

    small and white/light. looks like a wire in the picture but it def moved like a fucking snake. i've lost all sight of it now which is making me paranoid.

    any ideas what it is?

    picture is of no help obviously as i was completely shitting myself at the time.

    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    Don't eat Rat snakes, they kill the damn things that can poison all your food with their piss and they should be left alone. They are NON venomous and can not harm you and most times will just try to slither away.
