A recent capture of Western Brown within camp & release away from residents. The photos are a bit blurry as they were taken by the German chef & I think he was a bit nervy? His first Aussie snake and he nearly step on it! LOL View attachment 217088View attachment 217089
WOW, few years of work right there i would imagine, the inland tiapan is one impressive snake, not to many people see them in the wild! that said i have a soft spot for our red bellies my favourite for sure
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.
