Thailand is the habitat for several varieties of venomous snakes as well as many harmless species. The poisonous snakes that are indigenous to Thailand are cobra, king cobra, banded krait, Russell’s viper, some pit vipers and many of the thirty species of sea snakes. Many snake farms extract venom from the snakes in order to study and develop anti-venom serum to treat snake bite victims. The normal procedure for extracting the venom is through the use of a glass receptacle with a membrane cover. The snake handler holds the snake just behind the head and places the glass receptacle for the snake to bite into the membrane. The venom flows into the glass receptacle. The venom is then used to make the vaccines. Sometimes snakes are also bred at the farms.

The three main snake farm shows on Phuket are:

  • Phuket’s original Snake Farm, 2/1 Sririrath Road, Patong Beach (near Simon Caberet)
  • Andaman Cobra Show on Soi Ta-iad, off Chao Fa (East) Rd (a few kms north of Chalong roundabout)
  • Phuket Shooting Range in Chalong tel: 076 280130 (west of the Chalong roundabout on Route 4028)
