In sun next to log 20 metres off dirt road behind makeshift toilet
A young tiger snake found under a piece of tin. These are considered to be the third most venomous snake in Australia.
I think, looks like a yellow belly and the Tassie tiger snakes are usually very dark. Crummy photos as the annoying hikers ahead of us insisted on making a ruckus to drive it away. It's just sitting on a log really far away minding its business; get over it, y'all.
Large specimen near abandoned orchard boundary.
ID and locality info based off of my notes from 2004. I tried to update taxonomic changes.
Thanks to my father, Dr. Tod Reeder, for having me on this trip.
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.
