Hi,

I'm after some help with IDing a snake seen last week in Lamington National Park (SE QLD). The snake was seen on a track at Binna Burra and I would appreciate any help in identification. Estimated length was a little over a metre, with black body/tail and brownish head with light markings on the lip. I know the pics aren't the best... I only had my macro lens for the trip...

Cheers, Alshain

100% agree. The white streaks along the lip and behind the eye are diagnostic for this species. Venomous but not considered dangerous.

Thanks all, much appreciated.

It was an interesting walk with the ... highlight?... being myself stepping on a large tiger snake which thankfully was more terrified than I was and didn't turn around and bite me :/ I also got to see a lovely big carpet python that had eaten recently and was sunning itself :)

Cheers, Alshain
