King Brown or Mulga Snake

Pseudechis australis


King Browns are a large Elapid snake found over most of Australia. They are considered dangerously venomous, and can inject a large quantity of venom. Despite the name, they are actually not brown snakes at all, but are part of the black snake family (Red Belly Blacks etc).


Wide ranging habitats, usually more open woodlands, plains and forests.


Found this one the other night by the side of the road just out of Roma.
