Red-Necked Keelback

Red-Necked Keelback

Red-necked keelback is a species of a venomous snake. Found in Thailand. Snake has a greenish hue with red and yellow regions near the head. It grows to 90 cm length (including tail). The red-necked keelback lives near ponds and generally feed on frogs and fish. Red-necked keelback was previously thought to be harmless, but following one fatal envenomation, it has been reclassified as a dangerous species. To have any effect on humans rear-fanged snakes need to bite and hold on, or repeatedly bite. The bite can lead to internal bleeding, including cerebral hemorrhage, kidney failure, and nausea. Bites from the rear fangs can be lethal.
