Zoology of New Holland Plate 10
The red-bellied black snake is one of Australia’s most striking reptile specimens, with its satin black back camouflaging its vibrant red underbelly. Although normally quite placid, its venom is still dangerous to humans. Zoologist George Shaw was the first European man to identify and document the species.
