Snake Catcher Runaway Bay, Biggera Waters, Arundel and Labrador

Suburban properties including canal estates are typical of these suburbs which cater for a number of highly successful suburban snake species. Like most suburbs of the Gold Coast the snake catcher for Runaway Bay, Biggera Waters, Arundel and Labrador has recorded the Eastern Brown Snake in all of these localities. Other snakes favored by this complex suburban environment include the Common Tree Snake and The Carpet Python. The latter poses significant problems for small pets such as birds and guinea pigs which are not housed in snake proof enclosures.

A careful watch of any snake sighted in your yard or premises is paramount. Please continue to have a designated person keep continual eye on the snake until our Gold Coast Snake Catcher arrives

Biggera Waters

Biggera Waters Carpet PythonThese fighting Carpet Python males were spotted in the backyard of a property in Biggera Waters mid September of this year. The resident noticed the pair when he went to hang out the washing on a Thursday morning and found them fighting. Late August - September sees the beginning of Carpet Python breeding season so this is the peak time to see such displays. The two males were removed within 30 minutes of the call being received and were successfully relocated within suitable habitat. Although non venomous, Carpet Pythons can still strike with a painful bite. It is recommended that care be taken around snakes to avoid any negative encounters. If left unprovoked this species generally keeps to themselves and natural behaviours such as this dissipate when left undisturbed with the snakes usually moving on. To ensure the safety of yourself and anyone present around all snake species it is best to contact a trained and experienced snake catcher.
