Some pics from a quick (and decidedly cold) trip to Alpha in central Queensland.

    I found your website because we just had a Golden Crowned snake found up the road from here (just north of Batemans Bay NSW) and it’s very unusual to see them in the habitat in which it was found. It’s a rare and exciting treat to find snakes around our place (normally red bellied blacks). You had some great pictures of Golden Crowned snakes, but then I had to keep looking at all your other ‘finds’! I think snakes are beautiful and I’m fascinated by them but don’t know much about them, so I’ve really enjoyed reading this blog.

    Thanks for doing it.
