Northern Brown Snake – my first sighting…and my second, and third


I’m in the biz, so I don’t expect to see a snake new to me very often.  I’m happy (ah, not quite ecstatic, but thrilled enough to write about it) to say today is one of those days.

Lots of info about North Brown snakes can be found here.

Here is the first of the three I saw today.  I found it on the Tay-Midland Trail at the mouth of the Wye River.DSC09534 b


I included my cycling glove to give scale to these scalies.DSC09531 b

I don’t know it was because they were sliding on the asphalt, but they really seemed to side-wind across the cycling path to escape. DSC09529 b
