    Unfortunately I think that might contravene the 'in the wild' rule...

    Not enough. I've seen 39 Australian snake species in the wild. 161 to go.

    Edit: plus two unidentified species of blind snake, probably Ramphotyphlops nigrescens and Ramphotyphlops proximus.

    Have seen a lot but most memorable were large common death adder (1983) and a few broadheadeds (1997 just before NSW amnesty, after being added to the class 3 species)

    I think you might mean a Green Tree Snake. Unless you have been to Iron Range, you won't have seen a wild GTP, without trying to start another thread on wild GTP ranges in Australia, we've done that one pretty recently.

    Where did you see the Oenpelli Trouser?
