And the babies are just as dangerous as the adults – if not more so.
A NSW snake catcher, Sean Cade, told 9News last month “venom is venom”.
“No matter if the snake is 20 centimetres or six foot it’s the volume that causes issues with humans,” he said.
“In general, adults can regulate their venom and deliver a dry bite as a warning, but a baby, because they’re more frightened, they can deliver several drops.”
They are striped when they’re young to aid with camouflaged. Their colouring can range from orange to brown.
