We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
We caught quite a few of these medium sized snakes whilst we were doing a reptile survey in 2014.
This snake is non-venemous but is quite often aggressive and will bite.
The back is brown/olive coloured and the front is alternating black and red bars.
The female is larger than the male and their habitat is wetlands or marshes.
