Description:

2 sharp barks then silence from within the bush, unusual . . . well look at that my Fox Terrier thinks she's a pointer, must investigate.

a pale, two-tone snake with enormous grey-blue eyes stares placidly from a scrubby patch of bush, it must be approaching a meter in length but very slim with folds in its skin, a hungry snake I surmise; back to the truck, dogs in, camera out

Tiny little baby (~20cm?) in dried out reservoir; turned over a dried leaf looking for spiders and found it. Mostly head.
