Red-Bellied Black Snake

Pseudechis porphyriacus


This snake was relatively small - about a metre. They average between 1.5-2 metres. They are good swimmers.


Along a river.


Apologies for the poor picture quality - there was only a short opportunity for a shot as this snake was in a big hurry. We had just stopped at a creek to get water and nearly stepped on this guy on the dry riverbed. We had also seen another one earlier swimming across the river.
