Trying to identify a snake
Hi. Yesterday I was running through a hilly track and saw two snakes. It was the same type each time but was nothing I have seen before. The underbelly was light and the top very dark, almost black and it had blue spots half way down its body. It was about 1m long and had a small head. The terrain is dry, rocky and sandy. I was very close to one but it didn't seem aggressive. Scared the crap out of me though. Very curious to know what they might have been. Thanks
Snake in NSW
On a mates farm about 10.pm last Friday,I came across a snake I could not identify.
It was about 30cms long, black head, body was the colour of a king brown.
The location it was found is Bigga NSW.

A photo of the snake would help enormously to identify the snake.
If you happen to have a photo, please send it to me by email, and I am going to add it to your submission.
Hopefully, other readers can help you with the question.
Red bellied black snake
Have found 2 snakes in back yard in last month. Dog has killed both. I live on the escarpment in Wollongong NSW. They are black on top and gray on bellie about 500 - 700mm long.
Look light babies, are they baby red bellie black snakes? My kids will not go in back yard.
