February and March generally have a few surprises for snake catchers in Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan and surrounds. Here are a few recent encounters for our snake catchers.
Last month a Carpet Python was removed from a kindergarten in Springfield Lakes, south west of Brisbane. This cheeky carpet python found itself a nice hiding spot behind one of the kids drinks bottles. Our snake catchers safely removed the snake before moving it to a safe bush land.
The children at the kindy where so excited to see a carpet python at their school, our snake catchers ended up giving the children an educational talk about snakes.

Our snake catchers have been getting a lot of calls from Brisbane, Ipswich and Logan and one of them was for the second most venomous snake in the planet, the Eastern Brown Snake.
Our snake catcher was called for Eastern Brown Snake hiding in a storage bag in a home in Logan.

That wasn’t the only one our snake catchers had deal with last month. Another interesting capture was an Eastern brown snake in an office hiding behind a fridge.
The dry heat conditions during February and March cause snakes to come inside people homes, workplace and backyards to find somewhere cool to hide in any safe spot. Snakes will soak in pools, skimmer boxes, bricks, garden beds, amongst leaves, under roof tins, and even behind air conditioners.

Our Snake Catchers were also recently called to a house in Goodna where the homeowner had seen an Eastern brown snake in his daughters room.
After much searching for the venomous snake in the bedroom our snake catcher decided to look into this pink pencil case lying on the floor and on opening the pencil case up the little brown snake came straight out. A reminder to parents and kids to make sure kids’ rooms a clean as snakes will hide anywhere especially during this peak snake season.
