    Now, I don't mean to alarm you, but I think it is a King or Eastern brown, both are HIGHLY venomous and aggressive. Now, you need to call a snake removal company, I am sure you can find one on the internet.

    i get asked these questions all the time with very inaccurate descriptions of what they saw and how it behaved.

    there is no way of telling for sure what snake "tried to come into your house" from that sort of information and asking a forum will
    just make it more confusing

    Either one of those or the Northern Tree Snake, this snake is not harmful to humans, either way, call a snake removal company to come in and get it out.

    this is exactly what im talking about,a King brown in Widgee?? which is south east queensland?? this falls outside distribution of that species

    Dumbass suggestion confusing the already confused people trying to work out what snake it was with no hope from either party

    I might add that I have seen a wild one just east of widgee while on a herp trip with friends, so you are incorrect on this one.

    you are confusing a Kingbrown (pseudechis australis) with an Eastern Brown (Pseudonaja textilis)

    Really? So do Eastern Browns grow to 2.5 meters do they?

    Look mate I don't want to argue, What might be in that persons could possibly be a King Brown that's all.

    no i dont mean to sound argumentitive either it is also the other reason why trying to work out these sorts of things in a forum creates infinate cnfusion. When we type something it sounds blunt, compared to if it was spoken
