Tribute to the Eastern Brown Snake







The Eastern Brown Snake (Pseudonaja textilis) is one of Seven species found within the brown snake genus. Brown snakes though generally shy, are almost always nervous and defensive if provoked or cornered. The bottom photo shows typical colouration of the juveniles. They loose this colouring as they mature and although variable, most resemble that of the one photographed above.

Those are beautiful images - especially the third one where the snake shapes itself like infinity!

Impressive. My attempts at taking snake pictures fail dismally...not that I see that many snakes!
