    Now i found this today on my golf co**** (Dent island, Whitsundays) it had been dead for a couple of days ( ate a skink that was too big and the skink stuck a leg out through its guts).

    It was had been damaged by ants, no eyes etc.

    about 2 foot long

    As wide as an average persons index finger

    Very narrow head

    front fangs/teeth

    grey on top

    grey belly


    sorry about the bad pics, it was really sunny and i only had my phone and was in a rush.

    donks

    Possibly a GTS ... just a rather dark one.. which is typical for the area you live in

    Looks like an Ord Snake Suta ordensis but he'd be a long way from home.

    What about a Yellow naped snake
