Take a close look at this totaly harmless fella. It's a keel back snake also known as a fresh water snake (Tropidonophis mairii). An interesting fact is that they are one of only a handful of vertebrates that actually eat young cane toads. Unfortunately because of their appearance they are easily mistaken for brown snakes or rough-scaled snakes and are often killed as a result, to the point of almost being wiped out in the south-east.
