Just wondering if anyone can ID this animal. It was found by a friend of mine in the Pilliga Forest near Baradine. It was put in the cardboard box for photographing & released. I am told it was around 12 inches long.

Thanks Bushman.

This specimen is a beautiful animal. In fact, when I researched Brachyurophis I found that all in this group are spectacular animals, Australis & Fasciolatus in particular. I was also surprised to find that Brachyurophis australis is listed as an R1 species on the NSW native animals list. I have never heard of anyone keeping them.
