110/366 Death on the roadside April 19, 2012 Miss W. 3 comments Tasmania has a lot of roadkill due to many animals coming out at dusk to feed. Wonder what happened to this snake? tagged with roadkill, snake fauna
Are there many snakes in Tasmania? Aren’t they dangerous? Are you afraid of snakes?
I think we have only three species of snakes in Tasmania. All of them are venomous. In all my 56 years living here, I have only probably seen 6 live snakes in the wild and a few as road kill. If they hear a person, they are likely to move away quickly. They only attack if you actually disturb them. Here is a link to a page about them.
🙁 poor snake
