Colubrids are a group of non-venomous or mildly-venomous snakes.
Although poorly represented in Australia, this is the largest and most diverse snake family in the world, containing approximately 1400 species. Australian colubrids are divisble into 3 subfamilies:
subfamily Boiginae - a single venomous rear-fanged land snake.
subfamily Colubrinae - solid-toothed non-venomous snakes.
subfamily Homalopsinae - venomous rear-fanged aquatic snakes.
Australian colubrids are normally recognised by having less than 30 mid-body scale rows; loreal scale usually present, or if absent, 23 or more mid-body scale rows and a divided anal scale.
Here are some of the Colubrids that we are allowed to keep in Victoria:
- Brown Tree Snake - Boiga irregularis
- Common Tree Snake - Dendrelaphis Punctulatus
- Slatey Grey Snake - Stegonotus cucullatus
- Northern Tree Snake - Dendrelaphis calligasteri
