The Pale-headed snake is a venomous species of snake found on the east coast of Australia. They feed on frogs and small reptiles. This one was relocated from clearing activities (see notes).
Forests and woodlands. Live in hollow trees.
This was one lucky snake. Captured and relocated during clearing activities a few days ago. The excavator was banging a large tree while trying to push it over which opened up a large split into the tree's hollow center. Then out popped this Pale-headed snake. I promptly got the driver to stop and got it out of the tree. The last photo shows him coming out.
