Which ones on TV are you talking about ? 

 

OP you can look on FB we have a great snake forum in HH called snakes of Hua Hin. The group is easy to join and you can place photos for identification. They even have a catching service locally. 

I thought the snakes of HH was affiliated to the snakes of CM. 

I spent a long time reading that page, excellent info and the experts on their are indeed experts, not the ones on here where we end up with 10 different species.

 

well worth a browse if nothing else.

 

and to prove a point, I was going to suggest it was a young golden tree snake that hadnt yet developed the coloured markings.

I originally thought he was a Golden, but on closer inspection he really doesn't look anything like one.

The world’s fastest snake can’t travel faster than a human. The black mamba, the current record-holder for fastest snake, can only travel 12 mph. The average human can run at least 15 mph.

I think you will find only Usain Bolt can outrun a snake then when he is sprinting at 22mph.

a pro marathon runner is doing 13mph at world record pace

 

and eyecatcher can still just about manage a 10k (6miles) in 45 minutes so thats 8mph

 

but hey if you are likely to see a black mamba make sure you have your fat mate with you
