The snake was found in a house in the suburb of Burpengary East, Queensland. According to the owners, he was lying on a window sill. Snake specialist Josh Castle came to the scene to retrieve it. The latter did not fail to share photos of the reptile on social networks. ” This is by far the biggest red belly I have come across in a long time “, did he declare.

As a reminder, the red bellied black snake is also called a red-collared black snake. Part of the family Elapidae native toAustralia, it usually measures between 1.25 and 2 meters. It is one of the most commonly encountered snakes in eastern Australia. It can easily be recognized by its black colored body and red belly.

The reptile can inflict serious injuries. However, its bite is generally not fatal to humans. Moreover, it would be the least dangerous of the poisonous snakes in Australia. Scientists note that it attacks only when sent into danger.
