Snakes

Brown Tree Snake

As their name suggests, brown tree snakes, Boiga irregularis are skilled tree climbers where they search for lizards, birds and small mammals. These rear fanged snakes are considered mildly venomous. They are mostly active at night, which, along with their banded body has also earned them the name Night Tigers.

Coastal Carpet Python

One of the widest and most commonly distributed python species in Australia, coastal carpet pythons, Morelia spilota snakes can grow up to 3 metres and live in excess of 100 years! These powerful snakes are non-venomous but use their 80 backward facing teeth to catch possums, birds and snakes and then constrict them suffocating their prey.
