Local Snakes

The Bandy Bandy Snake

Now here we have a very cool little snake only growing to around 75 cm. He is slightly venomous but a very, very pretty snake with vivid white bands. The activity of this snake is very different as he lives underground only surfacing due to heavy rain and he only eats a very rare snake, […]


The Stephens Banded Snake

This small but highly venomous snake grows to a meter in length and is often mistaken for pythons or the bandy bandy because the Stephens Banded snake more often than not, is heavily banded (although I’ve seen plenty without bands at all or very dull and not so noticible bands!) This snake has a vey […]

The Blind Snake

Now for another interesting snake who is quite common yet rarely seen as he lives under ground and eats only ant eggs, he is usually no more than 20 cm, although twice in one night I seen them over a meter. These guys look and act like a worm and if you touch one they […]


The Marsh Snake

This very small (up to 50 cm) nocturnal and slightly venomous snake is as its name suggests, found around water sources. He loves geckos and frogs and he also has a name of the ‘black bellied swamp snake’. This guy is often found in water. He is a very dark grey with a lighter coloured […]

Roughscale Snake

The roughscale snake is a highly venomous snake that grows to a max of 70cm, it isn’t all that common unless you live in rain forest style areas. This small snake is the snake that keeps me on my toes the most out of all gold coast snakes. It is very defensive when provoked and […]
