Hi could someone tell me what type of snake this is ? I found it in my drive way this morning my dog was barking at it and trying to eat it I live in East Pattaya (darkside) and this is the 1st one I have seen in my village IMG-20181004-WA0004.thumb.jpg.ded293249eb1f4ea11c004076d46f4d6.jpg

Pit vipers seem to have a pronounced neck and head shape.  They say banded kukris are hard to grab hold of because the head/neck is not so pronounced.  I would pay particular attention to the marking on the head.  From the tail end, the darker area looks like an outline of a little man. A head with arms and legs. 

 

In addition, look at the spots, which can be rounded or somewhat band-like, and the three bands in between spots. ID can be tough, especially with variations of location and age of the snake.  But this one looks like a shoo-in for a non-venomous brown kukri.  I would not be concerned.  My wife would freak, but she does that even seeing a picture of a snake.  Any snake.  But she does like spiders, bless her.
