Australia has just added another poisonous snake to its list of dangerous creatures.
A team of biologists led by The University of Queensland’s Associate Professor Bryan Fry discovered the bandy-bandy snake at Weipa on the west coast of the Cape York Peninsula.
“Bandy-bandies are burrowing snakes, so Freek Vonk from the Naturalis Museum and I were surprised when we found it on a concrete block by the sea, after coming in from a night of sea snake spotting,” Professor Fry says.
“We later discovered that the snake had slithered over from a pile of bauxite rubble waiting to be loaded onto a ship."
