Burleigh Heads

Burleigh Heads Eastern Brown SnakeOctober sees high activity from Eastern Brown Snakes as this is the reproductive time for this species. We often get calls from residents reporting males in combat or mating with callers often confusing the two. Mating is a sedate affair (as pictured) whereas male-male combat is quite vigorous.This species enjoys drier backyards that may see high rodent activity. These particular snakes were located in Burleigh Heads and were exhibiting typical mating behaviour. As this species is highly venomous and defensive when threatened, it is recommended that the snakes be removed by trained, experienced professional snake handlers. Once we received this call our snake catcher responded within 30 minutes with the snakes being relocated to a neighbouring suburb away from highly urbanised areas. Please refer to our ‘Snake safety around the home’ pages in addition to our ‘Snakes around the garden’ pages which provide further useful information when considering snake species and their potential presence around your property.
