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.

Ensure all persons and pets are kept away from the snake. It will most likely move off on it’s own but, if it won’t move off, keep and eye on it from a safe distance and call us.
In your home:
Ensure all persons and pets are kept away from the snake. Close off doors and put rolled up towels or similar under the door. Call us and we will come and remove it.
