I think you need to have a bit more to do with red-bellies before you make that call.
It's an Eastern Brown Snake.
Haha all on my own time believe it or not!
I know that, I just don't like to admit it :P
No, I don't know the locales of the parents unfortunately.
They are just the same as keeping any other browns, which I've found don't seem to do...
I'm curious to know what it is about them that you don't like? I'm not saying that anyone has to like them, just curious to know what it is that...
They are just a VERY variable species, a red one can be found metres from a black one. It's part of the reason I like them so much!
I don't know...
Thanks mate, wasn't sure if it'll do real well on here seeing it's not pythons or beardies.
Brush it off and throw it in, reptiles do come across wood from time to time in the wild.... You also can't relocate a white ant colony, if any...
Only those that fail at finding snakes :P
Thought I'd throw up a few photos of some of the Eastern Brown Snakes (Pseudonaja textilis) that I've come across in the last year or so. Some of...
It's definitely Brachyurophis roperi
Sorry mate, only just saw your question.. I'm not sure on her age but she's around 4ft long. I also have one of her offspring (a male) who was...
It's definitely Cryptophis pallidiceps
You can keep them on a rec license.
Some nice stuff there, that Black-headed python is hideous though! :)
and you're a stylish man, Kris!
Pheonix is a female.
And in come the humourless to ruin the day!
Did you have any luck finding either species, Scott? Especially kabikabi.
It's a hatchy V. scalaris
AAE Coffs Harbour are by far the best branch that I've ever dealt with in the different areas that I have lived. Very helpful and go out of their...
Hanging out for this taipan picture! Or was he ambushed by it?
It's 110% a brown tree snake. Easy to tell from the patterning, head and body shape.
There aren't any diamond pythons in that area.
Snakes vary in size depending on the locality... if you want a pygmy carpet get a lowlands form jungle, if you want a pygmy bhp...get a Pilbara...
Whatever there is in captivity, there is usually a better version of it somewhere out in the wild. Hypo's, stripes, reduced-pattern, etc etc are...
Yes, where do you think the ones in captivity have come from?
Pseudonaja affinis ...second one is a cracker!
I hope the tiger snakes there eat them all..
He needs to do a bit more research... In the Australian episode he finds a St George mulga in the Atherton Tablelands, pulls a dog tame coastal...
Plain old Coastal Carpet
All hatchling and neonate elapids will bite before their first shed, and even if handled some will never settle down and not bite.
That looks unreal Mike! Good to see that you are still keeping some reptiles aswell, will have to catch up soon!
Here's some more of mine.
and another colletts
One that I hatched out last year
Personally I've found lacies fairly boring to keep, I've had lacies aswell as a panoptes outside in
pits and the panoptes is far more interesting...
Thanks, I might just do one for each reptile family then :)
Haha I can do a skink post for you if you really want!
Following on from my thread on Aussie Snakes which can be seen here -...
I don't get to get out enough! :(
It all depends on when the picture was taken.. all of them are taken with a Nikon D5000 body, but some are an 18-55mm lens...
Wild Aussie greens
A few more critters..
No it isn't. It's completely wrong..
Pygmy Pythons are found in the Pilbara (they don't go anywhere near the Kimberley), these 'pygmy' Stimsons...
P. henrylawsoni habitat.
A. perthensis in the Kimberley? A. s. orientalis at Mossman Gorge? Are you sure?
One of my inlands.
Haha she is only good for finding small-eyeds, and as I've told her many times - they aren't a real snake! :P
I'll get an oenpelli next time, I...
