    Their colour can vary a fair bit. Nicest eastern brown I ever came across was a wild adult that was almost jet black.

    as Aussie.snakes said, their colour can vary quite a lot. Same with any other wildlife.

    Dogs, cats and other animals can and do kill snakes without being bitten- some are superb at grabbing/biting/killing snakes without being bitten.

    Yes it's a Eastern Brown.
    QLD east coast has many different coloured Eastern Browns that are more often grey to black.
    Of course there are brown, but regardless of the colour they all have the lighter brown colour head and the pink/red coloured dots on their belly. Cheers
