Rough Scaled Snake, Tropidechis carinatus

One of the more recent milestones, has been a few encounters with Rough-scaled Snakes, as part of helping out with snake relocations – at Bateau Bay, NSW. This location, seems to be the furthest south of their distribution down the East Coast.

A front fanged, venomous snake which is medically significant.

Generally active at night, especially warm nights
