    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.

    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
