Hi guys,

Can anyone identify this snake spotted at Bindaree Falls in the Victorian Highlands?

Apparently it was 1.2m-1.5m long and a "reddish, coppery colour" with very distinct black banding. The description suggests Tiger Snake to me, whereas the location suggests Highlands Copperhead.

Thanks in advance,
Nic

P.S. Bindaree Falls is about 980m above sea level.

I'll back Baz and go Tiger (or have I stated the obvious?).

It's a tiger.... Transverse bands like that, the head shape and the location rules everything else out
