The Eastern Small Eyed Snake is often confused with the Red Bellied Black

The Small Eyed Snake is sometimes confused with the larger Red Bellied Black Snake because of its glossy black top and reddish under belly, but is actually more venomous.

These snakes are mostly nocturnal and feed on lizard and frogs. They prefer moist habitats, and so are occasionally found in well watered gardens.

This one was removed from a client’s pool area and relocated to more suitable habitat by our snake catcher.
