The keelback is a very common snake around any fresh water as they are a semi aquatic snakes that feeds on frogs and is an animal that can eat the cane toad. He is harmless and grows to around 3 foot. The keelback is mostly nocturnal and you can identify him by his strongly keeled scales as seen in my photo. The colour of keelbacks will vary but they nearly always look like mud as they are nearly always covered in mud. Unfortunately people see his rough scales and mistaken him for the venomous roughscale snake.(see description for this)
