Every region needs a hot spot and the snake catcher Coomera, Upper Coomera and Oxenford reports these suburbs as the most consistent for snake encounters. A number of species occur here and the presence of both established and expanding development has favored some species more than others including the highly venomous Eastern Brown Snake. With one of our operators based in the heart of these suburbs a rapid response is likely if the snake catcher Gold Coast isn’t on a job further away.

Having attended to calls throughout all these suburbs with regularity we look to attend the premises as soon as possible to assist you with your snake removal and relocation needs.

Coomera

Burton's Legless Lizard CoomeraWe had the somewhat regular experience of finding a Burton’s Legless Lizard when arriving at a snake catcher job in Coomera. This small but common legless lizard is often the recipient of misidentification. They have a readily distinguishable pointed snout therefore can be easily identified. A small, harmless reptile, the Burton’s Legless Lizard is of no concern to people or pets. This particular specimen was found under a sheet of iron on a property situated close to warehouse/industrial estates and later released to nearby suitable habitat.
