i have been seen many snakes lately. One of them was a malayan pit viper who is the most dangerous venomous snake in Thailand. It was about 50 cm from my foot but before i see it but i was lucky it did not bite me. I am wondering why most thai people dont kill the dangerous snakes that comes around the houses?

Actually, I think you will find that the krait is the most dangerous. But the pit viper's venom is also nasty.
