Hi guys,
I was hoping one of you experts would be able to help me identifying a snakeskin that we found at our house's atrium.

We've been told it might be a brown snake, but we have a lot of pythons around and it's a very long skin (132cm).
Fortunately, the skin of the head is still attached, so that might make it a bit easier.
I am from Europe and never had to deal with this issue, so I am very inexperienced in identifying snake skins haha. It would be great to know what it is, as I go to the atrium regularly to feed our little goldfish.

I attached a couple of photos.

Thank you very much in advance! :)

Kindest

Your location would help give an exact ID, but it's certainly not a python.

Hi Sdaji,
Thanks for your reply!
We live in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. In the bush pretty much.
I hope that helps.
Do you have any idea what it might be?
Cheers! :)

Looks like a Brown Tree Snake shed to me.

When identifying a snake by the skin theres a few factors that help, the belly picture is good, its a single scale, but is the pooper to the tip of the tail single or split?
also another indicator is how many scales are across the body (Not including belly scales)
another is the scales around the eye/mouth but I cant explain that too well.
