Snake Identification for all Australian Snakes
The correct identification of snakes, although not difficult, is often cause of much discussion and conjecture when applied by the lay person. Experienced ecologists or reputable snake enthusiasts should at a glance be capable of identifying all species of snakes with the vast majority supporting distinguishing features which separate them from species of similar colour or general morphology.
At Wildlife Qld we have provided general information designed to give you some useful tools to establish the identification of snakes you may encounter. We provide identification for snakes of south east Queensland as well as for the commonly encountered snakes of suburban Brisbane. Further regions and major cities will be added to this in the coming months.
Additionally a free service is provided where you can send in a photograph for identification by our specialist team. As long as the image is clear and discernible , we will provide you with an email response to put inform you of the species shown.
