Puff-Faced Water Snake by Culpeo-Fox Puff-Faced Water Snake by Culpeo-Fox
งูหัวกะโหลก.
Homalopsis buccata.


A small semi-aquatic snake that can be found almost all over Thailand, always near water (like swamps, streams, rivers, lakes, etc.). Puff-Faced Water Snakes are nocturnal and primarily feed on fish and frogs. They are rear-fanged and will readily bite but are not considered dangerous to humans.

While their English and German name appear rather tame, its Thai name literally translates to "Skull-headed Snake", referring to the pattern of its upper head which resembles a skull.

You can't get more goth than that. :skull:

Wow... :O_o: At first, judging by the shape of its body and head, I thought this guy was a python. ^^;
But nope, my assumption was wrong. :greetings: It is still fascinating to learn about this kind of snakes that are semi-aquatic,
rear-fanged, and even nocturnal by nature. Also, the scale patterns and colours this snake has are pretty awesome. :nod:
Another cool serpent-themed deviation totally :+fav:'d! :thumbsup::D

Danke! Ich mag sie auch sehr :) (ist halt nur schade, dass sie nicht auch im Deutschen so einen passenden badass-Namen hat wie im Thailändischen :P)
