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 is very quick. Its main diet is geckos and frogs, although it also will be found around bird aviaries trying to get mice. It is most active at night and unfortunately because of its name the poor keelback often gets mistaken for these guys.

The roughscale varies a lot in colour; some having dots, some are heavily banded, some are green, grey, or brown.
