Dugite Snake

The Dugite (Pseudonaja affinis) is a venomous, potentially lethal, snake of the family Elapidae native to Western Australia.

Dugites are coloured grey, green or brown. The colours vary widely between individuals and are an unreliable means of identifying species. The most distinguishing characteristic is the shape of the head, this is small compared to the neck, and grades imperceptibly into the body. They can grow up to 2m long.
