Long-nosed whip snake

Ahaetulla nasuta, Bernard Germain Étienne comte de La Ville-sur-Illon La Cépède, 1789

(In Thai: งูเขียวปากแหนบ, ngu khiaow pak naenb)

Site notes

The Thai population of what once was Ahaetulla nasuta is unclear since Mallik et al. 2020 reviewed the species based on genetic analysis of the Indian and Sri Lankan populations. The population in South East Asia needs further research for clarification.
