The recently described Australian elapid snake Pseudechis butleri is the least well known representative of the genus in terms of basic biology and reproductive mode. This report describes the reproductive behavior, oviparity and female defence of the egg clutch. Ontogenetic colour change and sexual size dimorphism from birth are demonstrated in the offspring. A review of the literature suggests that these conditions are relatively rare amongst elapids.
