Guessing Game Giveaway

My favourite pavilion at the Annual Show:I'm giving a prize to the first person (Australia only, sorry) who can correctly guess what this snake's name is.Look closely, as even I was deceived. I guessed correctly it's genus though!Good Luck! (oh, and don't worry, this snake is captive bred, and therefore is extremely used to humans, that's why he's so friendly....despite being one of the deadliest snakes in the world...does that help?)

:Edited to add:

I'll be closing comments come sunset on the 6th June, EST Australia. Closest answer gets the goods! I'm enjoying all your answers, most of which are great guesses, as all front-fanged snakes look pretty much the same!

Hey Amanda!
Sort of looks like a Tiger Snake - with its stripes (though they are quite dark)..... I could not decide on tiger or brown and Linda already took that so I guna go with Tiger!
