    Seemed placid enough and didn't come across aggressive. So, 'what snake'?

    Looks like a Green Cat Snake




    Green Cat Snake (Boiga cyanea) This snake is almost 2 meters long when fully grown, and resembling the vipers – except it’s too long to be a viper. Be very careful with any green snake as there are many vipers with strong venom that are green and look very similar to this one. Green vipers typically have brown colored tails. This snake has a solid green tail. The Green Cat Snake shown in the photo is harmless, and didn’t even try to bite as I interacted with it on my porch in Southern Thailand around midnight.

    Anyone know what snake this is? It had its head smashed in by MIL before I managed to take a photo. Apparently it can give a nasty bite.



    Another one, which I don't think is poisonous, passed too close to the missus and had its head bashed in too...



    I tend to just let them pass on their way with a photo, if I have the camera, but the wife and dogs kill first and ask questions later.

    ^ At a guess I would say the first one is an immature python.

    There are facebook pages caled snakes of Pattaya, snakes of Bangkok, snakes of Phuket and snakes of Chiang Mai mate who will tell you what species they are. Maybe best to use someone elses account with their heads caved in though. Some people are precious

    Brahminy Blind Snake – Non Venomous – Not Dangerous
    This one is 9cm. I've never found one any bigger but it's claimed they get to 15cm.

    There are a couple of "What snake is this" threads on TD. I wonder if the mods could merge them.

    Here's the other one.

    I don't know if you've ever noticed but earthworms mimic the actions of the above snake when uncovered.

    I 've seen only one once in Maryland, they are called worm snakes here. The one I saw was lighter and I discovered it while raking leaves.

    I may have posted a question on this snake before. Thai name Ngu din, it's the worlds smallest snake and feeds on ants. I didn't realise they got that big. Mine was like a matchstick and about 6 cm.
    Below is a copied image of a Barbados somethingorother, but heaps of info if you google "worlds smallest snake".

    Similar to the 'name that car' thread where the car's badges are blanked out, here I present 'name that snake' by cleverly obscuring its head


    Was in friends' house in Sa Kaeo.
    Common rat snake?

    Looks cobra-like to my amateur eye.
