Hoplocephalus bitorquatus (=bitorquata)
Highly Venomous - Extremely Dangerous
The Pale Headed Snake is closely related to the Stephens Banded Snake and the Broad Headed Snake.
These 3 species should all be considered very dangerous and all bites should be treated and victims taken to hospital.
This species is a good tree climber and is also nocturnal.
