We found our first brown snake of the season this morning. Just a baby one - but still! We were planting jasmine and picked up a rock. Eeek!

You're right to be wary- the babies are just as venomous as the adults, they're just smaller!

When I was helping a PhD trap earless dragons for a mark recapture study, we'd get baby browns curled up the bottom of the 'traps' (not really traps- open ended PVC pipe slid into the ground designed to mimic spider burrows). Except they weren't always brown snakes. Sometimes its hard to tell the difference between a Delma impar/inornata (legless lizard) and a baby brown at first glance.

The Estate- the traps, more often than not, had redbacks and wolf spiders, and we were charged with the task of evicting them. Thankfully redbacks are mostly harmless (...no reported deaths since 1956, and they are scaredy cats), and wolfies take alot of provocation for them to do anything in anger (and they aren't particularly venomous anyway).

:oops: funy you mention that slim as now I know what their egg sacks look like and have had them around my home for years, but was a concern when I saw one walking out in the open across the garage floor a few weeks later, he ended up like a pancake 'OOPPS' sorry I did not see you :twisted:
