Central Australia Birding
Plump Death Adder
November 15, 2011
Summer spotligihting for reptiles near Alice Springs
A Central Australian spotlighting trip on a humid November night usually turns up a lot of nice reptiles but tonight was exceptional. First animal of the trip: a plump sulky Desert Death Adder which posed breifly for a few photos before sliding off into the spinifex.
Note:Animal was not at the location shown- I don't share locations of animals prone to poaching (such as this snake).
