Nice pic!
Ok I know this one, apparently it is harmless small snake.
Saw one in Brisbane a few years ago, cute tiny thing.

Thanks. Yes, relatively harmless but I'd still use a compression bandage and go to hospital in case of an allergic reaction.

Well, dam!
I was told by the bloke who took it out of his hone that it is harmless.
He handle the snake with his bare hand and it sorta lay there not agitated..

Ok, I'll take heed, and treat it as somewhat dangerous.
