Baby Yellow-faced Whip Snake

Demansia psammophis


We found this tiny snake whilst bushwalking in the Tamworth Marsupial Park. It can't have been more than a day or two old. Its eyes were much redder than any other whip snake I have ever seen, and it had a beautiful maroon blush on the back of its neck. These snakes are venomous but not considered dangerous.

Thanks Argybee! It was an amazing find... not only a strange time of year to be coming across hatchlings, but it was the 'newest' baby snake my husband's ever seen, he was pretty excited. : )

Thanks everyone! It was terribly cute. (My husband also said, "I want to keep it!" but of course we put it back where we found it.)
