    Yeah, I think it's a vestigiata. I can't give a definitive reason as to why, it's face just doesn't seem paupuensis to me.

    Great stuff Matt! I really love the shot of that Greater Black Whip Snake, the photo really brings out the amazing colours on it.

    BTW we just don't get enough crocs in the Yarra do we?

    How were you differentiating between Mitchelli and Mertensi? On the basis of size alone, or markings as well? Any photos of Mitchelli at all?

    Mertens are bigger and even when juvenile, have a much bulkier look to them. the mitchelli was a lot smaller, and although juvenile, you could tell by its long and slender shape. and unfortunately it got away before we could get close enough for photos.
