A definitive and authoratative book on Australia's Reptiles and Frogs.  It is now available on CD-rom along with over 100 definitive reptile-related publications - It is a COLLETT'S SNAKE Panacedechis colletti (Boulenger, 1902)
Restricted to dry, non-swamp parts of inland Queensland this brightly coloured and deadly snake attains 1.5 metres in length, although specimens of over 2 meters are known. Juveniles are considerably brighter than adults, having more red or orange coloration present.
The scalation is smooth with 19 mid body rows, 215-235 ventrals, divided anal, and 50-70 subcaudals some single and some divided.
The Collett's Snake is very docile in nature and rarely bites, its' venom being neutralized by Red Bellied Black Snake Pseudechis porphyriacus anti-venom. If harassed, this snake may flatten out its' entire body. It is a diurnal species. This snake is an opportunistic feeder, feeding on a variety of vertebrates including other snakes.
This egg laying species produces about twelve eggs to a clutch. Hatchlings measure about 37 cm. This species is particularly easy to keep in captivity, breeding on a regular basis.

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.
