    Found this little guy at work tonight, suprized to see it so active as it was 8pm and 10 degree's out. Location was just outside Orange NSW, my guess is a copperhead but not sure. Anyways i found a nice place to let him go so he wouldn't get run over.Sorry about the bad pics but all i had was my mobile.

    I don't think it is a copperhead. Though it may be - it's hard to tell with such a tiny critter.

    Hmm.... the snake you photographed seems to have a darker head.... this isnt common with eastern browns.
    Where was he when you found him? Up high, or down low?
     
  5. No idea where Orange is, but almost looks like one of the parasuta

    Oh!
    Definitely.
    Probably a juvenile Parasuta.

    I just searched the whole reptile guide, it cant be a little whip snake,grey snake or small eyed..

    the closest i found is a curl snake,it's size reminds me of a dwarf crowned.. any photos of underneath?
