The Red Bellied Black Snake a poisonous snake found in Australia. The average adult snake is about 1.5 - 2m long. It is s shy creature which would rather avoid humans than confront them. When threatened it will try to bluff its way out by puffing itself up to look bigger and hissing loudly. It still threatened, it will attack in self-defence. There is no record of any human dying from the bite of a Red Bellied Black Snake.

Relax you are more likely to die falling off a horse than be attacked by a Red Bellied Black Snake.
