    Hi Stewart.

    Greetings from Hervey Bay Queensland.
    I feel sorry for that Eastern Small-Eyed Snake.

    I’ve read through a few of your blog posts, you’re quite an Adventurer!

    Safe travels.

    Leighton.

  2. Hi Leighton,

    Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately that snake was only one of several road kills I found that night. And of course it’s a fate that befalls many animals, not just snakes.
