At Phanganist HQ the other day we had a surprise visitor which at first was thought to be a cable moving - then realised it was a one and a half metre long Green Tree Snake AKA a Coconut Snake.
There are dangerous snakes on Koh Phangan such as Cobras and King Cobras but these are very rare and if you see one then count yourself lucky - but keep your distance. These dangerous snakes live in the undergrowth and do not stalk or threaten humans. If you see one then stop walking and simply slowly walk the other way and notify your hostel or hotel of where you have seen one of these and they will call ‘the snake guy’ too safely remove the snake from the premises.
