    Looks like a baby Eastern Brown we caught one in our yard and let it go elsewhere as we didnt want it to bite our dogs :) It looked just like that with those black head markings that they lose when they grow up.

    Pretty sure they are Eastern brown babies. I would not gamble on them being harmless that's for sure

    Definitely eastern browns, bites from ones the size can be lethal

    As Eipper indicates, don't be lulled into any false sense of security due to size. Baby browns have caused fatal bites. They already carry a lethal dose of venom and their fangs, although small, are capable of penetrating the outer skin to inject their venom into living tissue (i.e. subcutanous injection). Ignoring immediate first aid treatment due to their small size and the lack of bleeding of bleeding or irritation at the bite sight, is a potentially fatal mistake!

    So take extreme care in relocating.
