LITTLE SPOTTED SNAKE Denisonia punctata Boulenger, 1896
Found from western Queensland througout the top third of Australia, this snake attains 45 cm in length.
The scalation is smooth with 15 mid body rows, 150-170 ventrals, single anal and 20-34 single subcaudals.
This nocturnal snake is usually found in 'low' country and flood plains in a variety of habitats. Many specimens may be found within relatively small areas. It is principally a lizard feeder. When caught it will adopt a defensive posture of flattening its' body and striking frequently.
2-5 live young are produced.
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.
