RED BELLIED BLACK SNAKE

Pseudechis porphyriacus

By Rhianna Blackthorn

Red Bellied Black Snake

The Red Belly Black Snake ( Pseudechis porphyriacus ) is one of our best known elapid (or front fanged venomous) snakes. It is wide spread throughout the Eastern Parts of Australia, preferring to live near creeks, and fixed water sources. Their diet consists mostly of frogs, although they are known to eat the occasional lizard, and smaller snakes.
