An attractive little snake that can be rather easily identified due to its unique, bluish neck pattern and which inhabits Thailands southern parts. Shamefully though, it is one of the many Thai snakes that we know very little about, other than its main prey being mostly frogs and other amphibians, living near water. Being a rear-fanged snake, it possesses a venom which, most surprisingly, turns out to be quite strong (like the Rhabdophis genus, it was long thought to be harmless until a first account of serious envenomation occured). Therefore, it should only be handled with some great caution.
Hoo! That's bright blue pattern on this snake's neck is certainly a distinctive feature.
I can see these as beautiful patterns on kimonos actually....
How subtle, changing the hues of the background to match the color of the Blue-Necked Keelback.
OH my god.. this is so pretty! I really love this.. the colours are really embracing on the eyes... the pattern are a journey and really beautiful... Very inspiring indeed (since I'm into "motifs/patterns" lately... they're so hard to do!)
I love all your snakes - they're so intricate!
Love the patterns on this one!
Amazing and very lovely. Such beautiful snakes!
Another wonderful snake "window"!
I hope you do the African bush viper some time- I think it would look gorgeous in your style!
The series is all about Thai snakes only - but i get suggestions all the time, so i might do another series that focuses on popular snakes from other countries (i myself would love to do Black Mambas, Anacondas and some Rattle Snakes, for example)
Ohh love the patterns and colours!
Wow she is gorgous with the orange colours and the blue neck. love her pose and the patterns on her skin and in the background
Dashing red colors I must say. Excellent work!
Is this one poisonous as well as venomous?
As far as i know, the both-poisonous-venomous ability applies only to snakes of the Rhabdophis genus (as far as Thailand snakes go; outside of Thailand, you can name some Garter Snakes who also happen to be both venomous and poisonous (though, their venom pose no danger to humans - there are perhaps even more, but those are the ones that i know of)
I love how your art has a glossiness to it. The colors also really pop and make the texturing more real. Fantastic work, per usual. ^W^
I love all of these gorgeous snakes that you do! Snakes have a special place in my heart.
