Snakes Commonly Found in Bali
(Trimeresurus insularis) White Lipped Green Pit Viper
Venomous and will defend itself vigorously.
Usually found in trees but quite happy in cupboards etc
(Naja sputatrik) Javan spitting Cobra
Very venomous and should not be approached as very defensive if attacked. They can spit venom and hit you in the eyes every time from a distance of 2 metres resulting in a lot of pain and temporary blindness. Mostly seen as dull brown but some are almost black in colour. Most of the time they do not flare their hoods so this can make casual identification difficult. Usually found at ground level but can climb quite actively when chased. Often live in old rat holes etc so its a good idea to fill any holes you find around your garden.
(Ophiophagus hannah) King Cobra.
Largest of the venomous snakes on Earth. The biggest we have relocated in Bali was 5.3metres. These magnificent snakes are not commonly seen but we are tracking several and know exactly where to find them. In 2013 we hatched out and released 106 baby kings and this year are aiming to relocate even more. Our king cobra tours are turning up some spectacular kings
