We had this snake in our bungalow on Koh Lanta, Thailand. From the reaction of the employees at the resort I can tell that it is venomous, but that's all I know. I am curious, does anybody know what species it is?

Thanks and cheers, Philip!

  • $\begingroup$ Are you able to provide an image showing the snakes head? That would make identification much easier. Currently I'm thinking it's a chinese rat snake (quite common in Thailand), even though you said the employees are acting like it's venomous. see here for image $\endgroup$ – user22020 Aug 16 '17 at 19:13

If the resort is near a water body then it is highly likely that it is a keelback snake. For determining whether it is poisonous or not it is extremely important to look at the scale pattern on its ventral side(belly). Unfortunately that is not visible here.
