I nearly walked on this lovely inoffensive non-venomous snake but it was fairly conspicuous with its head held high on its thin bright yellow body. It feeds mainly on frogs and skinks but these are both in very short supply in the bushland. It was about a metre long and in good condition so it must be finding enough food.
