Episode 5 | Alice Springs snake encounter

[This video was originally hosted on KoldCast TV]
As travellers it is exciting to get up close and personal with local wildlife. But some species are better kept at a distance. We have run this video past a number of professionals, who are largely in disagreement about what kind of snake this really is. About half have said it’s a brown snake, famously known as the second most venomous snake in the world. On the other hand, some have said they reckon it’s not a snake at all and, on the contrary, they think it’s a legless lizard. In any case, they’ve all agreed on this: “When in doubt, don’t get up too close, and leave it up to trained professionals to deal with whatever that is.”
