Golden Crowned Snake! The largest of the crowned snakes, this species is also considered only mildly venomous, however will bluff and mock bite if threatened, rearing into an S-shape to display its bright orange ventral pigmentation, and bites from larger individuals may present a health risk.https://www.snakeoutbrisbane.com.au/
Awesome! Cheers people :)
I agree. Golden Crowned Snake - http://www.snakecatchers.com.au/Golden_C... ....although I've one anywhere near 3ft. Well spotted by the way :-)
ok then it would seem that it is most probably a golden crowned snake which can grow quite big, 50cm(about 1.6 ft) is the average but specimens as large as 90cm(3 ft) are known. Love your other snake spottings by the way!
Nah WAAAAYYYYY TOO BIG, I've seen a few of them and this was about 3 ft and far too fat, I have a dwarfe crown somewhere in my Noah.
looks like the dwarf crowned snake? how long was it?
