Bengkulu Cat Snake

Boiga bengkuluensis

Boiga bengkuluensis ( Bengkulu Cat Snake ) is a species of snakes in the family colubrid snakes. They live in the south region of Thailand.

These snake species live in a variety of different habitats within their range. Their habitat preference differs based on the species at hand. Some species live in humid tropical rainforest and mangrove swamps, while others live in grasslands and open woodlands. They do not live in colder regions or ecosystems.

Because they have such widespread distribution, these snakes interact with humans quite frequently. They live in many areas close to human habitation. While their bites are painful, their venom is mild and not dangerous. No human has ever died from a bite from this group of snakes.
