This is the Tiger Snake (Notechis scutatus). I think it has just recently shed it's skin. You can still see of few small patches of old skin and the snake is writhing and rolling about as if to try and remove the last pieces. Vikingtimbo, if you are watching, do you have any thoughts on that? For the record, this snake was not filmed 'in the wild' but rather, in a large enclosure at a wildlife park at Bicheno. I've had them turn up in my backyard from time to time and even got some photos but I have not yet managed to get video of a wild tiger snake.
