Snakes Commonly Found in Bali
White Lipped Green Pit Viper.. Venomous and will defend itself vigorously.
Usually found in trees but quite happy in cupboards etc
Spitting Cobra... Very venomous and should not be approached as very defensive if attacked. They can spit venom and hit you in the eyes every time from a distance of 2 metres resulting in a lot of pain and temporary blindness. Mostly seen as dull brown but some are almost black in colour. Most of the time they do not flare their hoods so this can make casual identification difficult. Usually found at ground level but can climb quite actively when chased. Often live in old rat holes etc so its a good idea to fill any holes you find around your garden.
King Cobra. Largest of the cobra family and potentially deadly if provoked. The biggest we have relocated in Bali was 3.6metres. These magnificent snakes are probably highly endangered now as reports of them are becoming few and far between
Banded Krait...Possibly the most deadly snake here.. We have never seen one longer than 1000mm but there are reports of larger ones in Java... These have definitely caused deaths in Bali
The one in this picture is the most commonly seen colour but others are nearly jet black with no white
