The Queensnake

Queensnakes inhabit the edges of streams and creeks. They are non-venemous and feed mainly on crayfish. Sometimes they are observed in the daytime hanging on bushes and tree limbs overhanging a stream. Generally, though, we find them under cover rocks close to the stream edge. They are sometimes confused with Garter Snakes but the pattern on their belly is unmistakeable.
