- Not claiming to be an expert, however been awhile since staff commented so....my 2 cents. @nae76- When Redbacks hatch they blow in the wind so it could be there is just the one or many. Best thing is to just be aware of potential habitats and monitor them. @Kerryn79- Not 100% definite but it certainly looks like a Redback. As mentioned in the article they can vary with their colouration, brown to black and the stripe bright red to a dull orange. All the locations you have mentioned are ideal Redback habitats. Generally a Redback wont bite unless provoked so best bet is to keep baby’s area clear. The white on its legs may indicate its a juvenile hard to tell size from the photo. @dat7- I used to have a Redback I allowed to stay and she LOVED skinks quite often she had one in her web a most fantastic sight indeed!(see photo attached)
- My apologies, here is the picture of the Hour glass shape.
- Hey Chrissy, im no expert but that photo def looks like a Redback. They can be black or brown. Is the marking underneath an hourglass shape? See photo attached to see what i mean.
- Just noticed quite a few comments of juvenile redbacks thought i would add this beautifully marked Red Back Juvenile.
