Sure.

As far as I know;

Described by Wells & Wellington on 1985.

They are the largest death adder species, adults have very big heads and truly amazing coloration. Females are typically a bit bigger and they have big litters, this baby girl had 16 siblings.

They come from Northern Australia, Barkly Tableland. They live on clay rich soil and hide within Curly Mitchell's Grass (Astrebla lappacea). Their environment is very hot in summer and get a bit cooler in winter.

Other than these, classical death adders with very strong neurotoxic venom, caudal luring, viperid features etc.

Feel free to ask questions if you have any.
