The thing is at first glance looking at many Aussie Elapids you will see mostly brown but that is as I said only at first glance. If you take a moment to look deeper you will see diferent shades of brown, brick red, orange, yellow, black, green, blue and many other colours. It's just a matter of taking the time to appreciate the variety and diversity in all our magnificent and spectacular Elapids. not only colours but when youbegin to look you can appreciate the diferences in scalation between snake species. such as that of the Highlands Copperhead (Austrelaps ramsayi) with their rather large scales and the Eastern Brown Snake (Pseudonaja textilis) with the cool flecks of light colouration between their scales. You simply can't deny their beauty once you have taken the time to look.

Or if u get close enough to look. :eek:

Having just read the entire thread what a brilliant education exercise for some of us who are less able to identify different types and species of snakes to others, in particular these elapids.

Who needs to go out and buy books and the like when u have this forum.

If I can ask how close would you have got to these to take the snaps or was it merely a case of every one on their merits??
