Snakes of Suburban Brisbane

Brisbane is home to a high density and diversity of snake species covering a range of vegetation communities and geographical locations. This includes the highly charismatic and abundant Carpet Python, the harmless Common Tree Snake and the highly venomous

Eastern Brown Snake all which are found with regularity in the suburban environment. Other more inconspicuous species are found in and around the home with some restricted to only particular vegetation types or specific localities. Venomous species outnumber the harmless Colubrids and Pythons, however only a very small percentage of these are regarded as medically significant when considering potential harm to humans.
