My favourite venomous Australian! This red-bellied black was on the lawn at Moffatdale Ridge winery where I was having lunch. It seemed quite happy slithering along the lawn (quite unusual to see one out in the open like that). A beautiful healthy specimen with vivid colouring, somewhere between 1.5 and 2 metres long. Despite being venomous and widely feared, red bellies are generally docile and will retreat rather than attack if threatened.
