yourself in harm's way - we advise you stand at least 3 metres away) and Scott will be

happy to identify it for you totally free of charge.

Do you need an unexpected (and probably unwelcome!) visitor relocated to a more

suitable environment than your hourse or garden? Call Scott on 0419 328 251. We

If Scott is unavailable he will be

able recommend an alternative professional snake catcher for you.

Our call out fee covers Scott coming to your home, catching your unwelcome guest

Scott coming back within a week free of charge if the snake eludes him first visit (which

rarely happens if you keep watch of it).

Logan Snake Catcher

Snake scales and Identification.

Features of scale arrangements and position is widely used by workers to distinguish one species from another. This could be scale 'x' is in contact with scale 'x', scale 'x' is divided, scale covers 'x' amount of the body and scale 'x' is adjacent to 'x' body part.

 

This is usually quite reliable allowing a certain degree of confidence to an identification. The case below we have three snakes - two are the same species while the third is different. The main point of difference used is the presence or absence of a loreal scale. This scale sits in front of the pre-ocular and first supraocular (these scales border the eye) and posterior (behind) the nasal scale (this scale contacts the nostril).

 

The two snakes on a natural background exhibit typical scalation features for their respective species while the animal on white completely lacks the loreal scale (it appears to be fused with suture, to the nasal). The key feature to split a Rough scaled snake Tropidechis carinatus- a dangerously venomous elapid from a harmless Keelback Tropidonophis mairri is the absence of a loreal scale.
