Demansia psammophis

Yellow-faced Whipsnake

Elapid

The Yellow-faced Whip-snake is one of nine species of whip-snake in Australia and New Guinea. It is a long thin snake with a narrow head and usually greyish green in colour. The eye has a comma-like marking to the edge of the lip; the black marking is edged with yellow. A white edged dark line is seen from the snout. The snake may grow up to 1.2 metres.

Distribution: While common in many parts of Australia, relative few have been recorded in areas northwest to south west of Canberra between Yass and Albury.
