LITTLE WHIP SNAKE
Suta (Unechis) flagellum

  

 

Note that in the Adelaide area this species is easily confused with Suta (Unechis) spectabilis which is also found close to the city and looks extremely similar. S.flagellum tends to be in the Mt Lofty Ranges and Adelaide Hills particularly south and east of the city. S. spectabilis tends to be on the coastal plains to the North West of the City and north of the Adelaide area. U. flagellum sometimes has a fat tail (sexual dimorphism?) and appears to have a more solid black hood marking.
