Bandy Bandy
Three of Australia's five small (to 50 cm), mildly venomous, black & white banded snakes are found in the WA Pilbara and Kimberley. None are commonly found because of their subterranean habits. All feed on blind snakes and spend most of their life below ground. They are occasionally found moving about on the surface at night.
