White-lipped Snake (Drysdalia coronoides) from New South Wales.  The definitive and authoratative book on Australia's Reptiles and Frogs, namely WHITE LIPPED SNAKE Drysdalia coronoides (Gunther, 1858)
The White Lipped Snake varies in colour from greys, greens, reds, browns or even black. It is found in colder parts of NSW, Victoria and all of Tasmania. It averages 40cm in length.
The scalation is smooth with 15 mid body rows, 120-160 ventrals, single anal, and 35-70 single subcaudals.
This mainly diurnal snake is usually found sheltering under ground litter, including well-embedded rocks when inactive. It is usually very abundant where it occurs. The White Lipped Snake feeds on skinks which it actively stalks. About 6 live young are produced from January to early
March, and unlike most kinds of snake, this species continues to feed throughout its' pregnancy. The young measure about 10 cm at birth.
