Golden Crown snake


Had a visitor the other evening as I was putting out the rubbish, a Golden Crown snake, easy to see why it is so named. It quickly slid away, I have seen him or his children around for a few years. Venomous but not dangerous - how does that work?

  3. golden crowned snakes are venomous but rarely bite. they will make a series of striking movements with a closed mouth. i just found one outside my front door and picked it up to let go in the garden away from my curious dogs.
