The Red-bellied black snake is one of Australia’s best-known snakes and has an average total length of 1.5 to 2 meters. Bites from Red-bellied Black Snakes are rarely life threatening due to the snake usually choosing to inject little venom toxin, but are still in need of immediate medical attention. They are less aggressive than most snakes.
Fact: When the Red-Bellied black snake is frightened they will omit an unpleasant odour to discourage their attackers.
