Not the best angle but, I think I can see a small yellow ring around its eye :).

Another great find of this rare ACT snake. Was it far from the other individual found earlier in the year.

As the Wedgetail flies it would be 1.5km from first record.
Since then another has been recorded (in my hand) in the Bullen Range NR. I'll get that in soon when I get the image.

The one I found wasn't that far away, on the property on the other side of Greenhills.
