Red-bellied Black Snake

Pseudechis porphyriacus


A common black snake found in many parts of Australia. It's narrow head and red underside make it easy to identify.


Along the Eastern coast of Australia


The name pretty much says it all. We have these in our back yard. As they are quite shy, and seldom aggressive, they are welcome as long as they stay outside!

No species ID suggestions
