    Can someone tell me what this is??? Sorry if the photos aren't super clear but they are the best I could get.:oops:
    And what should I do with it? It ate 2 mice and killed another 2 :( And now it is stuck in the cage. Can I take it up to the national park (5 min walk away) and let it go? Or should I have someone come take it?
    I joined APS just so I could post and ask :lol:

    Where abouts are you situated? that could help narrow it down a bit. Looks a bit like some Copper Heads I have seen in the Adelaide Hills. If you don't know what you are doing, it is best if you call a wildlife authority. JMO

    It's a Slatey Grey, as for the foul temper, the one my partner and I found a few weeks ago North of Townsville was very well behaved and we got some lovely photos of him:D

    In that case yes I am WAAAYYY off. If you ask ten different herpers you will get ten different opinions on anything. Here are a couple of pics one is a Slatey Grey which is non venomous, and the Black Bellied Swamp snake which is venomous. Both can be found around Cairns. It is probably a Slatey Grey as mentioned but unless you can tell which one is which, call a professional. black_bellied_swamp_snake.jpg slaty_grey_snake.jpg
