Curl snake

Suta suta

Description:

Curl Snake (aka Myall Snake) I spotted on the road (lucky I saw it!) while going for a drive just south of Roma last night. Wasn't totally sure what it was at the time so took it back for ID and a few shots before releasing.

Habitat:

Dry, open forest.

Notes:

Curl Snakes are considered "potentially dangerously venomous". He was very chilled though, can't imagine it striking anyone. They are known to curl up tightly into a spring-like coil protecting the head, in defense, hence the name.

Nice find, Nath! Although I do wish you'd stop bringing home 'potentially dangerously venomous' snakes. ; )
