    The copper head pic is awesome, you should send some of your pics off to go in a calander

    love the big EB baz, Alot of people dont believe they exist on the peninsula. Was it very defensive when you caught it? Most of the ones I have found in that area are pretty well behaved.

    Hey Grizz, that eb injury dosnt look to serious, degloving like this looks horrible but with a good saline wash and proper care they do recover if no internal damage has happened.
    @ Reptilian, do i know you?This brown was caught at Moonah Links..I havnt seen a lot of browns and i suspect this one was a hitchhiker as there was a delivery of building materials ect there.
    Im open to believing there is a breeding population of browns on the peninsula but still i think they originated from gravid females hitching a ride here.
    This one had a very calm nature and loved posing for pics.
    Ollie, this is the first brownsnake callout for me on the peninsula a dead one was found on the road by James Scott last year.
    Other local catchers have found them around Boneo and towards Flinders.

    Love tjhis thread brilliant idea. Would like to see locationsand species of each shown though, because I always like seeing the variations between areas of different species and sometimes in the same area. Love the shots Baz:D
