    Sorry Phatty. I was too quick

    Unfortunately not so common in VIC ;) All I see down here are browns, coopers and tigers. I saw some really nice CTS when I was still in Cairns. One I saw was almost black on top.

    Thanks. I always thought Night Tiger was just another 'local' name for a common tree snake... Guess I was half right.

    Just looked it up. You're right it is a BTS. For some reason I always mix them up. Oh well... I suppose it is better than confusing a BTS and a Taipan

    They are both essentially BTS. It's just the Night Tiger common name is usually (not always) associated with the brown(almost orange)/white banded form.

    Why, surely you have herps in the bush? Where are you?

    I'm with you on the names Gruni, I am only new to herps too and I like to see the common names as I feel I am too old to learn Latin. I do always try to identify the species from the pic before I look for the written name though.

    I just wish we had Pythons here in suburban SA, Normally only see Elapids and lizards around here and even then they seem to be getting rarer with all the housing going up in my area :(

    Washington state, in the US. We do have herps, just not of the Morelia type.
