KREFFT'S BLACK TIGER SNAKE
Notechis scutatus ater
(was Notechis ater ater)
Highly Venomous - Extremely Dangerous
Note that free-handling
extremely dangerously venomous snakes can lead to fatal consequences, even when the snake has been raised from a baby like the one photographed above.
The green arrow points to the location of KREFFT'S BLACK TIGER SNAKE previously known as Notechis ater ater. Other (now obsolete) subspecies of Notechis ater are also on this map as some people consider snakes previously classed as Notechis ater to be subspecies of Notechis scutatus
This map shows the distribution of the Eastern and Western Tiger snakes (Notechis scutatus) and needs to be combined with the map above it to see the current distribution of Notechis scutatus
