    snakes in hk

    Anyone know a good website or other resource with photos to help identify different types of snakes in HK? We recently moved to Pokfulam and our first visitors have been several types of snakes.

    and click through onto the HK Biodiveristy Database

    Guidebook, Hong Kong Amphibians and Reptiles, has photos of pretty much all the many species here

    We're supposed to be moving to Shekou in July. Nobody said anything about snakes. I hate snakes!

    Snakes mostly active in summer, and when it's dark
    For the most part, retiring too - leave alone, and they'll mostly take fastest route away

    With many snakes killed for supposed medicinal properties, could be that Shekou will have few wild snakes anyway
    (Even in HK, where snakes pretty common, I go hiking and birding quite a bit, but don't often see snakes)

    the two snakes we've had were trying to get into the house under the door when we found them
