Snake
« on: June 18, 2018, 11:13:43 AM »
Saw this critter slithering around my back garden the other day. Can anyone identify it? Is it harmful?  Sorry foto is not very good but the snake was about 130cm and its belly a little larger around  than a 10 baht coin.

Did he look like this?  If so, golden tree snake, slightly venomus, but not dangerous to humans.  Eats bird and can "fly."  If not, the deadly green mamba.  One bite, instant paralysis and a slow, agonizing death over the next few hours!  roll

Hi Rex,  No not like the one in your image. This one was more overall black - it did also have some subtle markings which may have been red but I didn't get much of a look at t as it was mostly gone by the time I got to the window.

We saw a golden tree snake on our balcony eating a little bird whole.  Amazing! Just like one of those Nat Geo videos about the anaconda eating the pig, only on a much smaller scale!
