A couple of Thai snakes

Post by numpty » April 29th, 2018, 11:44 am

A short trip to Koh Phi Phi in the Andaman Sea of Southern Thailand last month, and I managed a few hours wandering in the woods along the spine of the island. I snapped the following fuzzy shots of two snakes, the first of which seems to be a wolf snake, the second a bridle snake. Maybe those familiar with Thai herps can tell me the exact species as I'm not sure whether the wolf snake is Lycodon capucinus or aulicus, and whether the bridle snake is Dryocalamus davisonii or subannulatus. Or perhaps my guesses are way off and they're something else entirely.

Thanks for any help in ID-ing the above.

I also glimpsed a golden tree snake shooting across a busy street in Bangkok, scaring a businessman standing on the kerb immersed in his phone. Too fast for me to photograph unfortunately. And there were the usual lounging lizards in Lumpini Park, Bangkok ... these anything but too fast to photograph.
