FLOWER POT SNAKE
or

Brahminy Worm Snake
Indotyphlops braminus

This species is not venomous and does not bite.

Note that this is an invasive (not-native to Australian mainland) species!

This species has spread to many countries worldwide as it likes to live in flower pots.

Also it is parthenogenic which means that all Flower Pot Snakes are females and can breed with no males present!

In tropical coastal Australia it has been found in towns along the coast of WA, NT and Qld, and it is also found on Christmas Island.

Note that due to its tiny size it is easily confused with juveniles of native species of blind snakes.

They are very small, grows to about 170 mm (under 7 inches) making it the smallest species of snake found in Australia!
