snake watch 6: small-eyed snake

smalleyedsnakeAbout 18 months ago, I posted on this blog about a 30cm snake that Catherine had spotted near our driveway. I think it was a juvenile small-eyed snake pictured here (very similar in appearance to a red-bellied black, though not as dangerous).

Today, Christopher and I spotted another one – maybe 60cm long – in an old mulch pile I was moving. If my identification is correct, this is the shy, smaller, less venomous cousin of the RBB.
