    Not too long ago, myself and my girlfried, CVHG, umped onto a pressuresed metal tube and flew 2848.54 km / 1538.09 nautical miles to the NT's night life crazy CBD, Darwin. We landed at midnight, with boots, camera equipment, a bag full of field guides and a sleeping bag each. My best...

    Snake ID

    Found in a CQ kitchen, on a local buy swap and sell page. I think it's either a baby brown, or an orange nape snake. Despite numerous calls from people that it's actually a BHP.

    Snake ID: Possible moon snake hatchling?

    This snake was found in Batchelor, NT, on a footpath, in the middle of the day but under shade. This footpath is between buildings and less than a metre from a small garden with hay laid over it. Sorry about the poor quality photos. A friend reckons it might be a moon snake/orange naped snake...

    Photos from a trip to the Red Centre

    Over the Christmas break, I had the opportunity to make a quick trip to the Red Centre. It is a place that I've wanted to see for many years but never could find the time to get out there. Australia is a big place and the drive to the middle of the continent is a big one from the east coast...

    Snake ID

    Now I'm pretty certain it's an Orange Naped Snake, but wondering if it could possibly be a different naped as some of the pictures Ive looked at look similar to others, anyone want to confirm. I have read they stand upright and kind of bluff as a defensive measure and this guy was certainly...

    Hi All, I have just seen some pics of Piebald ball pythons, and I was wondering if anyone in aus has started to do the same thing with our reptiles. Or if not how long do you think it will take until they would be available. Because a piebald bredli or jungle would look so awesome.:)

    Smallest non-venomous snakes in Australia

    Is the Antaresia/Liasis perthensis (Anthill/pygmy python) the smallest native python in Australia? (heard that they don't grow much bigger than 2 feet) Does anyone know whether it is easy to get hatchlings of this species?
