Mudgeeraba

Mudgeeraba Carpet PythonThis Carpet Python was a surprising find for this Mudgeeraba tenant. Coiled on top of the toilet, this snake looked very comfortable and didn’t seem to want to move. Our snake catcher responded to the call and within 20 minutes the snake was removed. The snake was released within the thick vegetation located around Advancetown Lake where an abundance of suitable habitat is present. Carpet Pythons occupy a wide variety of habitats ranging from rainforests to dry woodland and farmland. This species is very common in suburban backyards due to their preferred prey of rodents being abundant in these areas. This species is strictly non-venomous although can bite if provoked. Carpet Python bites can cause severe lacerations or punctures and are quite difficult to detach due to their backwards facing teeth. It is important to contact a trained and experienced snake catcher to handle and relocate any snake you may encounter around your home.
