Thailand is home to a great variety of snakes. Some of the most charismatic snake species occur here like e.g. the King Cobra and the Reticulated Python. But there is so much more, ranging from pit vipers to coral snakes, and from colorful rat snakes to beautiful kraits.

On this page we intend to introduce the various snake species of Thailand. We have quite an archive of images, but lacking the time to make photo selections and writing on this webpage, but over time we hope to have a comprehensive list of all Thai snakes with photographs (well, that’s the dream…).
We won’t go much into detail on each species, already more than enough info out there online, but hope it is helping you to identify a species you might have encountered.
