    Yesterday I opened the front door and this snake was happily laying there. I did manage to take a picture and would like it identified. The snake then made it's way under the house where I store many things.
    Is it a variey that I should be concerned about?
    Regards

    Can you give us some more information? Particularly where you are from, how big it was and if you were able to see any markings on it's head/face? (i know ther is a pic, but i still can't quite make out accurately any markings around its face.)

  5. I wouldn't be getting this one confused with a Keelback. Looks like a young Eastern Brown to me.

    I noticed the bricks now lol, gonna assume about 60cm?

    I'm leaning heavily toward a brown or to lesser extent some kind of whip. Defo not a keelback though.

    I would say an Eastern Brown but it would be good to see the head bit better.

    No it's alive and I think somewhere under the house. Should I get someone to find and remove it or will it go away by itself?
