1 Thailand Photos Venomous Snake Thailand Venomous Photos Collection Snake [Page Updated: 8 May 2017] COBRA SNAKE PHOTOS King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) This is the longest venomous snake on the planet, and they get to around 6 meters long (19 feet!). The King Cobra length isn t the scary part, it s the amount of venom they can inject with one bite which can kill an elephant. The brother of a friend I have was killed by a bite to the chest while doing a snake show with a king cobra. He died in less than 10 minutes. Kings are rather slow to bite, but if you are within striking distance, and they think you are a threat, they might feel threatened enough to strike.

2 A captive King Cobra at a snake show in Southern Thailand. Ophiophagus hannah. Ophiophagus hannah, the deadly King Cobra Monocled Cobras (Naja kaouthia) These are usually quite dark brown, black, or dark grey snakes that are very fast strikers and movers. The Monocled Cobra s venom is much more lethal than the King Cobra s venom, so only a very small amount is needed to cause death in humans. I met a woman who lost a husband recently, due to a bite on the man s toe when it came out from under an outdoor refrigerator as he opened it to get a beer. The venom is both necrotoxic and neurotoxic. First the man who was bitten lost his foot to necrosis. Then up to his knee. Then his entire leg, and the doctor assured him and his family he would be fine now. He died days later. Monocled cobras are quicker to bite than king cobras and are exceptionally dangerous. Do not mess with this snake.

3 Juvenile Monocled Cobra Naja kaouthia in Southern Thailand. Color varies from dark black to grey to brown. Deadly venomous snake. Naja kaouthia just might be my favorite snake Monocled Cobra. KRAIT SNAKE PHOTOS Banded Kraits (Bungarus fasciatus) Banded Kraits are yellow and black snakes which are active at night. During the day they are usually quite docile. Some are foolish enough to hand hold them during the daylight hours. Show this snake more respect, its venom is quite lethal and kills people each year in Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia. Bands can be yellow and black, white and black, or even with longitudinal (yellow adn black striped) instead of banding due to genetial anomaly.

4 Banded kraits can be yellow and black or white and black. They have a very high vertebral ridge. Bungarus fasciatus. Save 50% if you order before April 15! Venomous Snakebites and Near

5 Misses! More than 34 stories of venomous snakebite and very near misses from Southeast Asia s most deadly snakes King Cobra, Malayan Pit Viper, Monocled Cobra, Banded Krait, Malayan Krait, and more! Digital Book with over 100 pages by Vern Lovic. Order PDF HERE! HERE! JUST $4.99 for Today! Malayan Kraits (Blue Krait) (Bungarus candidus) Stronger venom than the Banded Krait, but not as lethal as it s sister the Multi-banded Krait, that looks very similar. Malayan Kraits are generally not interested in biting, but they have one of the most toxic venoms of any snake. Extreme caution is recommended.

6 Malayan Kraits come in black and white and have thick bands of alternating white and black. This one is flattening itself to appear larger. Red-headed flaviceps) Kraits (Bungarus The Red-headed Krait, is seen as often during the day as night. These ultra-lethal venomous snakes are quite rare to find at all. I have seen just two in nine years of looking for snakes in Thailand. Most people never see one in the wild. Their venom and behavior has not been well-studied but their venom is very toxic, like the other kraits.

7 A deadly Thailand snake, the red-headed krait (Bungarus flaviceps). These are extremely rare. Many-banded multicinctus) Kraits (Bungarus A small, less than 10-inch snake called Bungarus multicinctus killed famous American herpetologist, Joe Slowinski while he was on an expedition in Burma and far from a hospital with respirators. He died within 30 hours from the Many-banded Krait bite. These snakes have venom which is in the top 5 of the most lethal territorial snakes in the world. These snakes look very similar to the Malayan Krait, but they have more bands. HAVE YOU READ THIS SNAKE BOOK YET? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! One of Top Snake Biologists in the World is in Burma and is Bitten by a Krait Great Story! VIPER SNAKE PHOTOS

8 Malayan Pit rhodostoma) Vipers (Calloselasma One of Thailand s most deadly pit vipers Malayan Pit Viper. Deadly necrotoxic venom. These snakes have the distinction of killing the most people across Thailand of any other snake. Malayan Pit Vipers have large heads, very large fangs, and a strong bite that can inflict deep wounds filled with venom. These snakes love the grass and light cover. They tend not to move at all when approached, and don t give any noise before striking. Usually people die when they don t get hospital treatment quickly. The venom is primarily hemotoxic and the victim bleeds from orifices on the body as well as from the brain. Malayan Pit Viper

9 Siamese Viper (Daboia siamensis) Found north, west and east of Bangkok this snake is not to be found in southern Thailand. Siamese Vipers kill more people across the globe than any other. Like the Malayan pit viper these vipers are very strong, thick, and have large fangs. Siamese Viper Daboia siamensis is a deadly Thailand Snake. Image used with permission. Thanks Mike! Beautiful Viper AKA Brown-spotted Pit Viper (Trimeresurus venustus) And she is a beautiful snake too! In the header of this website is a photo of what I think is the first venomous snake I saw in Thailand the Trimeresurus venustus, the Beautiful Pit Viper. These are small vipers with very small scales especially on the head. They are not so deadly, but you will have strong local reaction to the venom.

Indo-Malayan Mountain Pit Viper A father sent me photos of a snake that his young son was kicking at while they visited a waterfall on the Thai-Burma border in Phang Nga province. These are rare in Thailand, and have a nasty bite. Luckily, his son was not harmed.

They spend time in mangrove areas near the ocean, and I ve yet to see one in the wild. They are big biters and not docile at all. Be careful if you come across one of these small vipers.
