This snake ranges from brown, to grey or black in colour, and attains 1.4 metres. It is found in far north Queensland, tropical parts of the northern territory, and adjacent coastal areas.
The scalation is smooth with 17-19 mid body rows, 170-225 ventrals, single anal, and 65-105 divided subcaudals.
The harmless Slatey Grey Snake is usually aggressive when caught, biting repeatedly and exuding a strong odor from anal glands. In captivity however it settles down very rapidly to become a docile easily handled snake.
The Slatey Grey Snake is nocturnal and although found in a variety of habitats, it is usually found in association with water. The Slatey Grey snake feeds mainly on frogs.
An egg layer, it lays about twelve eggs per clutch. Hatchlings measure about 30 cm.
