Snake Identification Please!

Recommended Posts

(searched for the old snake ID thread but couldn't find it, sorry)

 

Found this snake in the garden today (Laguna Phuket area), unfortunately the gardener got to it before I could carry out a rescue plan.

 

Any idea on what it is and if it's poisonous? Measured about 50cm in length and about 1.5cm in diameter. Assuming it was a youngster...

 

Thx, FC

PS.  Might be better to tell the gardener not to kill any snakes in the future if you like them!  I won't even allow people to kill the cobras, banded kraits and huge python that live on my land.  Never had a problem with them in 15 years living her (apart from the python snacking on my ducks).  

What would you do if, like me, you found a large cobra in your living room and it was very likely your dogs (part of the family) would attack them to protect their people? (They have previously shown they will take on anything to protect us)

 

That cobra wasn't going to be gently persuaded to leave the house and yard and go about it's business peacefully. It disappeared under a couch. It ended up like the snake in the OP. The male snake following it's scent into the yard caused more havoc and was also dispatched.

We see a lot of cobras in our street headed for the farm over the road. We don't touch them, but the same can't be said for the farmer and his snake savvy dogs. He kills scores every year. He does call the snake rescue people to collect the pythons that come for his ducks.

Colour too dark to be a poisonous snake... generally poisonous snakes are bright coloured, even the Banded Krait with its black and yellow.....

Join this group. Might help you stop senselessly murdering all the Phuket wildlife out of total ignorance.
