June 2016

With the cooler weather starting to embrace Brisbane, the number of snake sighting and enquiries have taken a steady decline. Contrary though to popular belief, snakes don’t hibernate in winter – they just become far less active. The most common scenario at this time of year is the sighting of Coastal Carpet Pythons as they seek warm, sunny spots for thermoregulation in the immediate vicinity of suitable refugia. Carpet Python captures in June have been recorded from suburbs such as Jindalee, Richlands, Calamvale, Chapel Hill, Graceville, Toowong and Bellbowrie.
