Samui Snake Farm Reptile Zoo
Pythons are non-venomous constricting snakes that live in
Southeast Asia, Australia and Africa. Pythons are native to
the jungles of Koh Samui.
Pythons are among the longest species of snake in the world.
They often reach a length of 4.5 to 6 meters, even 10 meters
(35 feet) in some instances.
Pythons reside and hunt in the underbrush of the dense
tropical jungle and are also excellent climbers and
swimmers. They kill their prey by strangling it to death.
Pythons feed on birds, mammals and can swallow a whole pig,
digesting it over several days.
Potentially an adult python could attack and kill a human
being, but these reports are extremely rare.
The King Cobra is the world's largest venomous snake with
lengths reaching six meters. It is a native of South-east
Asia and inhabitates the jungles of Koh Samui. The King
Cobra is a cunning, expert hunter which feeds on small
mammals and reptiles, including other snakes.
Crocodiles are native to tropical and subtropical regions of
Southeast Asia, Australia, Africa and America.
Crocodiles live in swamps and slow moving rivers and feed on
fish and mammals that approach the water. Crocodiles are
known to attack humans.
Typical adult length for most species is 2 to 3.5 meters and
crocodiles are known to exceed the age of 100 years.
The Mongoose is a small carnivore and the cobra's biggest
enemy. The Mongoose is very alert, swift and
resistant to snake venom. They live in Asia, Africa, and
southern Europe with more than thirty known species. In lieu
of a cobra or other snake, a hungry mongoose will also feed
on insects, crabs, worms, lizards and eggs.
