If you’re looking for a big, green water snake, you’re in the wrong place.
Here’s how to spot them and the best ways to treat them.
We’re told water snakes have evolved to survive in a harsh climate.
They’re not native to Australia and so the Australian Government is now studying the issue of whether or not they’re harmful to people and the environment.
We spoke to Professor Paul O’Sullivan from the University of Queensland about water snakes and the Australian Water Health Act.
Professor O’ Sullivan says water snakes are a species of snake and that they are quite a common species in Queensland and New South Wales.
“They’re quite common and in many parts of Queensland and NSW they are a fairly common sight in bushland and other natural areas,” he said.
“The water snakes that are found here in Queensland are quite small and they live in areas of low rainfall, low water flow, and relatively flat water like lakes and rivers.”
What we have seen in Queensland is the population of water snakes, which is in the tens of thousands, have evolved, evolved in a relatively short period of time.
“Professor O. Sullivan says that in the past, water snakes were not commonly seen in Australia and that many people didn’t realise they were snakes.”
A lot of people have the misconception that they’re a little bit scary, that they look like a little little bit snake that looks like a snake,” he explained.”
But they’re actually fairly harmless, they’re not dangerous, they don’t pose a risk to humans.
“And the water snakes in Australia are very rare.”
Professor John Rennie from the Australian Reptile Park says water lizards are quite common in Australia.
“In the last 10 or 15 years or so, we’ve had a number of new species of water lids introduced into the country and they’ve all been water lizard species, including the very popular water lily,” he told us.
“We have been seeing water lilies introduced into some areas of the country where we’ve not seen water licks before.”
Professor Rennis also said that water lills are quite different to snakes.”[They] are the snakes that live on water, they are in water, and they are very similar to water limes,” he added.””
We have water lillies that we’ve seen and water ladders that we have encountered.”
Professor Rennis also said that water lills are quite different to snakes.”[They] are the snakes that live on water, they are in water, and they are very similar to water limes,” he added.
“There’s a very distinct difference between water lice and water snakes.”
He said the most dangerous water lollies are those that are venomous.
“I think the water lilly has the most danger to people.
You know, water lies are very dangerous, but if you bite one, it’s quite painful, you can feel a big burn,” he stated.”
So if you see one in the wild, it could be quite dangerous.”
