Description

On the way to Pelion Hut, we saw what I believe was a Tiger snake, Notechis scutatus . It was lying next to the trail, and moved away rather slowly. I was able to catch this shot.

Tasmania has three species of land snake:
Tiger snake, Notechis scutatus
Lowland copperhead, Austrelaps superbus
White-lipped snake, Drysdalia coronoides

All three Tasmanian species are capable of injecting venom, although the venom of the white-lipped snake has never been recorded as causing death to a human.

Saw 2, each photo is of a different animal. This was very early in the morning, and neither snake seemed to want to budge, but they did puff up their throats in response to my approach!

Description from Wikipedia

Tiger snakes are a type of venomous snake found in southern regions of Australia, including its coastal islands and Tasmania. These snakes are highly variable in their colour, often banded like those on a tiger, and forms in their regional occurrences. All populations are in the genus Notechis, and their diverse characters have been described in further subdivisions of this group; they are sometimes described as distinct species and/or subspecies.
