|Red-bellied Black Snake Pseudechis porphyriacus
|Paluma, Queensland, Australia
The Red-bellied Black Snake is distributed in parts of Eastern Australia. It grows to about 2 metres and, while poisonous, is not as deadly as most other Australian snakes. It rarely bites unless provoked and will usually try to escape into cover if it detects a human presence.
