The Keeled Slug-eating Snake or Pareas carinatus, is a snake found in Southeast Asia especially in countries from south China to Burma, Indochina to the Malay Archipelago, Cambodia and Thailand.

This snake is harmless, nocturnal and arboreal, a specialist in eating only snails and slugs, and is an oviparous.

Three young Herpers were busy for two nights at Bang Krang in Kaeng Krachan National Park. I have never seen young and dedicated young Herpers like them. David Frohlich shared everything to me when I found him in the middle of the night taking photographs of what they found one at a time. He also asked me to accompany him to find more snakes around the rangers’ station and it was the first time for me. The next day, we went for an early birding sortie and it was difficult so we decided to return to the camp and found David and his friends taking photographs of several snakes. We asked him if we could join them and these guys were fantastic, they shared everything.
