    this is a good thread and shouldn't be relegated to mkp.


    snakes are one of the most misunderstood creatures on this earth; one of the most beneficial to mankind too, especially in the very communities that they are indiscriminately exterminated.
    i guess that the only reason the thai rice farmers survive is that:

    in spite of the fact that the rural thais who produce the rice crop, destroy (kill and/or eat) the birds and snakes that normally keep the rodent and insect populatrion in check, which would be highly detrimental to them under "normal" conditions:


    ..they themselves are the greatest predators of the vermin that would normally destroy the crops, so i guess that snakes and birds have no real role to play in thailand anyway!
    brrrzzzzt, brrrzzzt!
    beep!. ting, ting
    redirecting, please be patient..........:

    hello, insect!

    tsicar, pissed or not, you don't have to worry about 'our' snakes. The only thing that we shoot them with has the label 'Nikon' on it.

    The dogs never hurt a snake, just chasing them away and last night was the first time a snake decided to resist them telling it off.

    The Golden Tree Snakes have a habit to sometimes visit us in the house but even then we carefully catch them and put them where they belong.

    every snake here is 'poison kill you one hour', or simply 'cobra', therefore dead on sight.

    I've been claring an area about 1500sqm, slash and burn and flushed a few out into the danger zone, where they have become lunch or dinner for the farmhands.

    This one was 182cm

    If I had caught that Golden Tree Snake in my home, I would have, after taking my heart medication, taken it to my neighbor to BBQ. Hate snakes worse than Liberals.

    Nice pictures.
    The golden tree snake must be quite common, I`ve seen them on many occasions.
    Agressive? Not in the least IME anyway.
    The ones I have encountered have seemed quite indifferent to human intrusion.

    Beautiful snake.

    The 3 below are just the ones I have captured a picture of.
    Spotted at Koh Kood, Koh Ngai and Koh Chang, resp.

    Really not a danger to humans.

    "f they feel threatened and cannot flee, they bite straight away. The species Chrysopelea belongs to the family of rearfanged snakes. However, the poison is so mild that it does not have much of an effect on humans. "

    As their fangs are very much in the rear of their mouth it is difficult for them to even bite you.


    If bitten the danger is more from the filthy mouth rather than any toxin.

    Great to have around your house, eats jing jocks, lizards etc.

    I saw this one today. Decided not to disturb it to get a better view.




    It would have made Dill's pool guy a nice lunch.

    Splendid decision to leave the snakes the fuck alone, which should be passed on.
    Nice spot, Nev.

    I'm not an expert but that shiny blue hue makes me think of a sunbeam snake. Saw one a couple of years ago that a labourer had killed on my soi, so looked it up. Not venemous, and very beautiful colours. He thought it was a cobra, dickhead.

    Yep, second study, I'd say definitely a sunbeam.

    (not my photo)

    All the same, my wife would piss herself if she saw it.

    I've never seen her move as fast as when she saw a harmless little green tree snake here in Oz. Mind you though, they do look like some of the quite venemous snakes in Asia.

    Thanks for your thoughts, chaps. I think Maanaam has it with the sunbeam snake ID. Nice to know it's not venomous or dangerous.
