Curl snake

Suta suta


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.


Dry, open forest.


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. ; )
