Dummies.  One of the most common venomous snakes in the area is the Malayan Pit Viper. You should get some folks who actually know something about Thailand.

Correct . Mother in law was bitten by a snake in the back yard . At the hospital the doctor asked what species of snake which I did not know as I did not see it ( it had emerged from under the washing machine whilst mil was stood there and then disappeared ) . So I went back to the house and pulled out the wash tub which was placed on a dozen hollow blocks Looked into every block and the last one had the snake inside coiled up . Taken to the garden and fil hit it with a wooden pole and then placed in a cardboard box and then boot of the car . I went back to make sure there was no other snakes  Back to the car and going to close the car boot but checked the box and as I opened it the snake shot up . I threw it on the grass and smashed it with a steel tube . Took it to the hospital and i.d. was a young cobra about 2 feet long . Doc said more danger than an adult as they cannot control their venom release and give all . MIL in hospital for 3 weeks . On return home she developed shingles ( very painful ) as her immune system was low .

Does knowing their names protect people?

Will certainly help the hospital select the correct anti venom.

The birds here go crazy if they see a snake. Good watch dogs.

There is a general anti venom that can be used for 18 varieties of snakes and I believe it is being developed in Thailand
