Pseudonaja textilis (Eastern Brown Juvenile)

Pseudonaja textilis (Eastern Brown Juvenile)
This is a head shot of a recently expired juvenile Eastern Brown Snake showing the distinct black head marking and black collar (nuchal band) It was approximately 31cm or 13" in length. It must have strayed into the porch area and my cat struck before I could intervene, unfortunately!

Several hours have passed since I took this shot and the cat is showing no signs of snakebite. Monitoring will continue, of course.
