The Gold Coast is home to a large diversity of snake species with many species often coming into contact with humans. These include such species as harmless Carpet Pythons and Common tree snakes as well as the highly venomous Eastern Brown Snake which is found across most Gold coast suburbs.

June 2016 Snake Catcher Activity
The cooler weather is starting to embrace the Gold Coast, bringing with it a marked decrease in the number of snake sightings and call-outs, as is typical for this time of year. Coastal Carpet Pythons and Common Tree Snakes have again been the usual suspects, as they are commonly encountered while out in warm, sunny spots for thermoregulation or hunting a wintery meal. Suburbs for Carpet Python and Common Tree Snake captures have included Nerang, Elanora, Mudgeeraba, Currumbin Waters and Robina.
It’s also that time of year when we are often contacted regarding snakes in ceiling spaces, as species such a Carpet Pythons will often take up residence in roofs. Remember, we are available for roof inspections should you have concerns about a snake in your roof. Other snake species encountered have included a Keelback from Robina and a Small-eyed Snake from Bonogin.
May 2016 Snake Catcher Activity
Snake activity is starting to slow up on the Gold Coast with the commencement of the cooler months. As is typical, the most commonly encountered species have been Common Tree Snakes and Coastal Carpet Pythons with captures recorded from Carrara, Nerang, Broadbeach Waters, Reedy Creek, Bundall and Parkwood.
Of the venomous species, an Eastern Brown Snake was relocated from Upper Coomera and an interesting encounter also occurred at a different property in Upper Coomera where an Eastern Brown Snake was sighted on the roof of a residential house. Contrary to popular belief, venomous snake can climb, however a scenario such as this involving the Eastern Brown Snake is quite a rare occurrence. Snakes in these sort of situations can be very difficult to catch due to their high agility and mobility and our snake catcher was unfortunately unable to locate the snake in this case.
Remember, keep our number handy in the event you need a snake catcher. We can be contacted 24/7 on 0418 738 228.
June 2015 Snake Catcher Activity
As is typical for this time of year, snake activity has been slow on the Gold Coast with snakes seeking refuge in warm localities and often going undetected. Coastal Carpet Pythons and Common Tree Snakes are by far still the most common snake encountered. Captures include a Coastal Carpet Python from Robina, a Common Tree Snake from a Swimmart store at Nerang and a Keelback Snake from Robina. Venomous snakes have been lying low during this cold weather, however an Eastern Brown Snake made an appearance at a water treatment facility at Mudgeeraba and was caught and relocated by our Gold Coast Snake Catcher.
May 2015 Snake Catcher Activity
Snake activity is starting to slow up on the Gold Coast with the onset of the cooler, winter months. It's a bit of a myth that snakes hibernate over winter – they don't – they just become less active, but are still seen thermo-regulating by getting some sunshine. The usual suspects such as Common Tree Snakes and Coastal Carpet Pythons are still out and about quite often with venomous snake relocations including a Small-eyed Snake from Willowvale, a Yellow-faced Whip Snake from Chambers Flat and even a Rough-scaled Snake from Eagle Heights
March 2015 Snake Catcher Activity
Snake activity has started to slow down at Gold Coast with some sporadic rain events and the weather starting to get a little cooler. The most frequently captured snakes have again been the Coastal Carpet Pythons and the Common Tree Snakes, with Mudgeeraba, Coomera, Wongawallan, Tamborine and Helensvale being very active. A Common Tree Snake was also caught from Australia Fair Shopping Centre at Southport and released in more suitable habitat (and away from shoppers!).
Eastern Brown Snakes, including quite a few juveniles, have also been making appearances in various suburbs. A juvenile Eastern Brown Snake was removed from a house in Pimpama where it was hiding behind a pot plant just inside the front door and a large Eastern Brown was removed from behind a toilet at Ormeau. An Eastern Brown Snake in a confined space such as a toilet could respond with a bite if it felt intimidated enough. Eastern Brown Snakes, in these sorts of situations, are particularly defensive.
