About Pseudonaja Inframacula Snake:
The peninsula brown snake (Pseudonaja inframacula) is a species of venomous elapid snake native to South Australia.
The peninsula brown snake is a fast moving snake, preferring the warmer weather. Many specimens are quite dark to black.
Venom yield studies at Venomal Inc. have shown that this species yields, on average, 24 mg of dried venom, which are 6 times the old published accounts of the yields from common brown snakes.
Given that a single vial of brown snake antivenom is designed to neutralise 4 mg of common brown snake venom, the effects of a bite from this species are potentially very serious.
The venom is the second most toxic of the brown snakes making it the third most toxic in Australia.
We have noticed that specimens of this species tend to grow larger in agricultural regions suggesting the reason is due to prey switching from predominantly lizards in more natural settings to predominantly mice in developed habitats.
We have seen large specimens of this species eating sub-adult sleepy lizards.
Actions of Pseudonaja Inframacula Snake Venom:
There have been no formal studies into the venom action of this species and from comparisons of electrophoretic patterns; the venom appears similar to that of the common brown snake Pseudonaja textilis.
