PENINSULA BLACK TIGER SNAKE
Notechis scutatus niger
(was Notechis ater niger )
(Status uncertain)

Note that this subspecies is not recognised by most people - however this page is here for completeness, and the common name is still often used for this race of tiger snakes
Highly Venomous - Extremely Dangerous

Penisula black Tiger Snake 
This race of Tiger snake is found on Eyre Peninsular, York Peninsula, and Kangaroo Island as well as multiple small Islands off the South Australian Coast.
The Tiger snakes found on the Fleurieu Peninsula may also belong to this race or be intermediate between the races.
The Tiger snakes that occur along occur along most of the Murray River are Eastern Tiger Snakes (Notechis scutatus scutatus)
however those found near the mouth of the Murray River might be intermediate between the two races

FOR A COMPLETE MAP OF TIGER SNAKES
(that covers all the races and/or subspecies of Tiger Snake (Notechis scutatus) the two maps below must be combined)

 
The BLUE areas along the South Australian coastline show where Peninsular Black Tiger Snakes occur.
Peninsular Black Tiger Snakes were previously known as Notechis ater niger
. Other subspecies (now considered obsolete by many) of Notechis ater are also on this map as some people consider snakes previously classed as Notechis ater to be subspecies of Notechis scutatus
