Is this snake a Malayan Pit Viper?

Recommended Posts

Seen near the house in Rayong area.

 

Could someone please identify?

 

Thanks

Looks like a baby python. Pit Viper head is much more pronounced shape than that. I am very much an amateur so go easy with it!

I saw (almost stood on - daughter pushed me away) this one in April - from pics I believe it to be a Malayan Pit Viper, looks different to the one pictured in #1

Thanks for the replies that were constructive.

 

Vern also thinks python. Sorry the photo was a bit blurred, but taken quickly as I don't like to get too close. Usually only golden tree snakes around here.

That is my first python, and the markings were impressive.

Yes its a python, not really dangerous. The bite is painful, but its not poisonous and generally the are not aggressive.

 

There are groups on facebooks that are for identifying snakes and educating people about Thai snakes. This one is Bangkok but they have them for other regions too.

Definitely not a Malayan pit viper.

I just asked the Mrs. if it's a pit viper and she said definitely no as well.

 

Her expertise comes from our visit to a snake temple in Penang where for a small fee our photo was taken with a large boa placed  around our shoulders  and a  small  Malaysian Pit Viper placed on her head like a tiara.   😀
