COMMON EASTERN BLIND SNAKE Ramphotyphlops nigrescens (Gray, 1845)
Found throughout the coast, ranges and near slopes of Victoria, New South Wales and south-eastern Queensland, this is one of the more common Blind Snakes in this part of the country. It sometimes exceeds 60 cm and is also one of the largest Blind Snakes. It is usually pinkish in colour.
Most specimens are seen during the day under ground cover, or on wet nights crossing bush roads.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
