The Bandy Bandy

Vermicella annulata

By Rhianna Blackthorn

The Bandy Bandy (Vermicella annulata) is a nocturnal hunter, feeding solely on Blind Snakes. During the day, the Bandy Bandy can be found under logs, or burrowed deep into the earth. Found throughout Eastern Australia, it is thought that the Bandy Bandy's numbers are secure, adapting to live in a variety of habitats from desert to rainforest. An egg laying species, females lay between 2 - 15 eggs with young being seen in early Autumn. Not a lot is known about the toxicity of Bandy Bandy's but it is not believed to be dangerous to humans. They grow to a total length of just one meter, making them one of our smaller snake species.
