Just wondering what one does with the information afterwards?

Once you get identification for your snake, it can get into national parks by paying the Thai price.

There are 224 species of snake in Thailand, only about 12 are venomous, some are venomous and poisonous, for quick identity try snake of Isaan, on FB, usually get a reply in 5 minutes. 

Thais need a lot of education where snakes are concerned. With gentle persuasion I’ve got the wife to the point of not screaming every time she sees one in the garden. Being cold blooded most times you see them is when they are warming up in the morning. Treat with respect, keep your distance, they only attack when surprised or beaten with a big stick, I think you would retaliate as well. Remember they are part of the ecosystem, without them we’d be over run with rats and little lizards. 🙂

Yep - Kukri Snake; per Vern Lovic's "Snakes of Thailand" e-book.

 

'This snake is common across Thailand, and
apparently has a pattern that makes people
think it is venomous and dangerous because
most photos I get are of the snake after
beheading or being smashed with a shovel.
These are harmless snakes that eat frogs, eggs,
lizards and other animals on the ground. Kukri
snakes come in many shades of brown, pink,
and orange.'

 

The e-book is well worth downloading if you are at all interested in identifying snakes for yourself (load www.thailandsnakes.com and look for the picture of the book cover a few scrolls down)
