The Latin name is "Pseudechis Porphyriacus". From  its name "Red Bellied Black Snake" we must have been able to find out  how its characteristics, namely having a black body, but with a red  belly.

The main food is frogs. Able to reach lengths of up to 2 meters, and their habitat is around the waters.

This snake will actually not be interested in attacking humans, unless they are truly threatened. 


Actually there are still many poisonous snakes that might be found in both urban and rural areas in Australian countries. Due to space limitations, I am not likely to mention them one by one. Hopefully the above references can help you. 


The second longest venomous snake species in Australia, the King Brown snake, otherwise called the Mulga wind (Pseudechis australis), has a to a great degree across the board circulation, happening all through the greater part of Australia except for Tasmania and Victoria.


Most snakes would in a perfect world crawl far from people over battle them. "Snakes don't view people as sustenance and they don't forcefully nibble things out of poisonous quality. Their venom is utilized to suppress prey that would by one way or another be incredible for a snake to eat," says Dion Wedd, supervisor of the Territory Wildlife Park, NT. "On the off chance that their particular flight course is past a human with a scoop, by then they are in all probability going to respond in the standard way they can." 

So in the occasion that you're remaining between a snake and its departure course, plan for a fearsome component. However all species are perhaps unsafe, here's our pick of the 10 most risky snakes in Australia – some of them essentially venomous, some extraordinarily nervous, some you're fundamentally more inclined to see sneaking without end in your grass. 

1. Eastern brown snake

(Pseudonaja textilis)

For the most part called: typical dull shaded snake 

Found: all through the eastern fragment of a territory Australia 

Fast moving, solid and known for their ghastly temper, eastern diminish shaded snakes, together with different tans are in charge of a more noteworthy number of passings dependably in Australia than some other party of snakes. Not exclusively is their venom arranged as the second most toxic of any land wind on the planet (in light of tests on mice), they flourish in populated locales, especially on domains in typical areas with mice. 

At whatever point exasperated, the eastern darker raises its body off the ground, bending into a 'S' shape, mouth developing open and organized to strike. Its venom causes dynamic loss of development and shields the blood from thickening, which may take different parts of neutralizer to turn around. Shocking misfortunes may crease inside a couple of minutes. 

2. Western brown snake

(Pseudonaja mengdeni)

Besides known as:gwardar 

Discovered: interminable over a large portion of an area Australia – missing just from the wetter edges of eastern Australia and south Western Australia 

Said to be less relentless than its eastern cousin, the western darker snake is still altogether dangerous and part of the social event of snakes that causes the most fatalities in Australia.Western tans will govern in doubt be lively moving and unverifiable in disposition. At whatever point exasperated, they will keep running for cover, striking rapidly at whatever point cornered, by then making a savvy escape. 

Notwithstanding how their venom isn't as perilous as the eastern brown's, they pass on three wrinkle the whole. Bite are all things considered simple and hard to see because of the little tooth marks. Regrettable misfortunes will encounter cerebral torment, issue, stomach torment, honest to goodness coagulopathy (blood thickening issue) and now and again kidney hurt. 

3. Mainland tiger snake

(Notechis scutatus)

For the most part called: conventional tiger wind 

Found: along the south-eastern bank of Australia, from New South Wales and Victoria to Tasmania and the most remote corner of South Australia 

Region tiger snakes are responsible for the second-most basic number of nibble in Australia, as they have essentially populated districts along the east buoy, including some metropolitan locales of Melbourne. They are pulled in to ranches and outside nation houses, where they seek after mice nocturnally and can without a considerable amount of a stretch be trodden on by befuddled deplorable difficulties in the dinkiness. 

Bite are dangerous if untreated, causing torment in the feet and neck, shivering, deadness and perspiring, trailed by breathing bothers and loss of development. The venom additionally harms the blood and muscles, prompting renal thwarted expectation. 

Grown-up snakes are if all else fails (in any case not constantly) joined, with depleted stripes fluctuating in shading from light yellow to diminish along a strong, solid body that can make to 2m. At whatever point undermined, they redress their necks and strike low to the ground. 

4. Inland taipan

(Oxyuranus microlepidotus)

For the most part called: enraged snake or negligible scaled snake 

Found: in breaks and separated in dry unsavory fields where the Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales and Northern Territory edges meet 

Standoffish and sensational, the inland taipan hangs out in its remote, obnoxious regular condition. This snake just makes the basic 10 on account of its astoundingly harmful venom, saw as the most strong of any land contort on the planet; it can kill a grown-up human inside 45 minutes. 

Seeking after in the restricted space of the entries of the since quite a while earlier haired rodent, the inland taipan utilizes its strong venom to complete off prey rapidly, embedding in excess of different events the entire foreseen that would murder a 200g rodent. The prey has insignificant shot of doing fighting back. 

Just a pack of individuals (all snake handlers) have been eaten by this species. Each made due with emergency treatment and hospitalization. 

5. Coastal taipan

(Oxyuranus scutellatus)

By and large called: eastern taipan 

Found: in a twist along the east buoy from northern New South Wales to Brisbane and northern Western Australia. They are affixed to sugarcane fields. 

Sea side taipans are furnished with the longest teeth of any Australian snake (13mm), and have the third most dangerous venom of any land snakes. 

To a phenomenal degree dreadful and alert, they set up a brutal affirmation when dazed or cornered, 'solidifying' before hurling their lightweight body forward to cause two or three especially smart snapping eats. In any case, they're not normally angry and would much rather make tracks in a contrary course from any hazard. 

Before the presentation of a specific counter-administrator in 1956, taipan eats were in every case destructive and caused different human passings. The venom impacts the material structure and the blood, with burden, fits, inside kicking the can, pulverization of the muscles and kidney hurt. In incredible cases, passing can happen in only 30 minutes.


Yes. Well in reality I think almost everything in Austrailia is poisonous even the cute little platapus has spikes on its legs that have poison in them.
