PENINSULA BROWN SNAKE
Pseudonaja inframacula
Dangerously Venomous
This Peninsula Brown Snake (Pseudonaja inframacula) was found dead on the road near Marion Bay, York Peninsula, South Australia
This Peninsula Brown Snake (Pseudonaja inframacula) was found dead on the road near Marion Bay, York Peninsula, South Australia.
I found 4 more dead roadkilled Peninsular browns in the same region and they all had some black speckled scales on their body and their bellies were almost black (unlike Eastern Brown Snakes)

Venomous snakes do not always inject venom when biting, those bites are called dry bites, however due to the extremely high toxicity of the venom of this species, it is vital that first aid is performed immediately (constrictive bandage etc.) and the patient is taken as fast as possible to hospital. Lack of symptoms may not mean that the victim has not been envenomated.

Correct and immediate first aid and treatment for this species and other dangerous snakes increases the chance of survival.

Although people are commonly bitten by dangerous snakes in Australia, the actual number of deaths is actually very low, due to antivenines and medical procedures.
