File Snakes

(Family: Acrochordidae)

File snakes are totally aquatic fish-eating snakes, characterised by their loose, baggy skin covered with coarse scales. File snakes produce live young.

Two species are found in Australia. The Arafura File Snake (Acrochordus arafurae) inhabits freshwater, while the Little File Snake (Acrochordus granulatus) occurs in coastal, mangrove- lined habitats.
