Whats this is it an Inland Taipan or mulga
brown snake ???
Looks like an inland taipan to me, but i'm no expert on elapids.
where did you see it? It isn't a mulga.
if hes in Sydney then its not a inland tai... got any closer shots of the head
Aww its a little blind snake, harmless to hold! JKS
It was at Tibooburra well near Tib
Near Cameron corner in the very north west of NSW
Ur in the right area but it i don't think it is a fierce. It's some kind of brown, which one i can't be 100% but most likely a gwardar.
Thanks mate, I have been wondering for a little while I stopped him getting the shovel!
im no expert but western brown comes to mind
Western Brown Snake. Have seen alnost identical snakes from Bourke, Wanaring through to Tiboobura. Everyone confuses them with the Fierce Snake in north Western NSW.
Are you aware that they have split the western brown into multipl;e species?
and yes even the experts mixed the new taipan with a western brown
I will be my house on that its not Oxyuranus...its one of the Western Brown complex most likely aspidorhyncha or mengeni
