    Eastern Brown Snake (Pseudonaja textilis) - juvenile

    Reasons for ID: the distinct thin black bands against the tan coloured dorsal coloration, together with the black head cap and nuchal band are characteristic of juveniles of this species in some eastern areas

    Where was it found?

    You're welcome mate. You did the right thing by erring on the side of caution with this.
