SPECKLED BROWN SNAKE
Highly Venomous - Extremely Dangerous
Speckled brown snake Pseudonaja guttata was captured as a baby from Goyder Lagoon in SA
A friend of mine found a Curl snake, (Suta suta) which he caught. It regurgitated the baby Speckled brown snake Pseudonaja guttata (which was still alive and survived).
The baby snake was initially kept alive at the South Australian Museum (where I took this photo). Initially the identity of the species was unknown and photos were distributed around Australia to try and ascertain what species it was!
This was the first record of Speckled brown snake Pseudonaja guttata from South Australia!
