Why Use Our Professional Service?

There are a number of considerably dangerous snakes on the Sunshine Coast, and some do find their way into homes, sheds, garages and even offices. It isn’t always possible to tell what type of snake you are dealing with, especially if the snake is frightened and trying to flee or hide. However, some snakes may become aggressive when they feel threatened, and you may not be able to tell whether the snake in front of you is venomous or not, meaning that any contact you have with the snake could be potentially harmful or even fatal.

This is why it’s always best to use the experienced and professional services we provide! A threatened snake can easily cause harm to you, your loved ones and children, and even pets, so we encourage any Sunshine Coast resident to contact the Snake Rescue Sunny Coast team for professional advice and assistance.

The Snake Rescue Sunny Coast team are fully qualified and trained to catch snakes and provide expert snake removal and relocation services. We have been providing snake catching, removal and relocation services for snakes and reptiles on the Sunshine Coast for over eight years. Our passion for Australia’s wildlife, extensive experience and love of snakes makes us the best choice if you need a snake catcher on the Sunshine Coast!

Our Snake Catching Process

When we’re looking for a snake, the first places we look are along the walls and under debris. Snakes try to avoid predators by moving along the walls and beneath cover. Unless they are going from concealment to cover or seeking warmth from the sun, it’s unusual to observe a snake moving out in the open. 

We study their body language once we discover the snake, before we attempt to catch it. This tells us what the snake is thinking and indicates what it might do. We can tell when they are going to run, stand up and fight, or simply be apathetic toward our presence based on their body language. It’s critical for us to understand how to capture and handle snakes using this information.

After they’ve been captured, they’re put in a bag and kept quiet in a dark, tight space. This keeps us safe while handling the snake, as well as allows the snake to calm down.

Following the capture of the snake, they are relocated to suitable bushland and set free. Each snake is assigned its own habitat and food. As a result, we release them into areas that are ideal for each species. Keelbacks and Red-bellied black snakes enjoy frogs and lizards, so we put them in areas near water sources such as rivers or dams.

During an operation, we always want to double-check the snakes for health and remove any external parasites like ticks before they are released. If the snake is not healthy enough to be released, it may be due to injury or sickness; they are taken to Australia Zoo’s wildlife hospital for further evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation.

As snake catchers, all the snakes we catch are logged with the department of wildlife and science. This is so they can keep track of where each snake has been caught and released, to monitor and maintain the biodiversity in the area.

We have also been keeping a personal log of all the snakes we have caught on the Sunshine Coast that you can view on our website. This way you can see the species and location of each snake we have caught around the sunshine coast and in your areas.

Sunshine Coast Snake Catching Services

When you see a snake on your premises, the most important thing is to keep an eye on it and take a photograph from a safe distance if possible. Getting a photo of the snake aids in identifying it and advising you whether the snake is hazardous to you, your pets, or your children.

Photos also aid us in our search and enable us to identify the snake and determine whether it is venomous or arboreal, among other things. It tells us whether we should be looking for it in trees and bushes or beneath rocks and substrate.

If the snake is non-venomous or weakly venomous, you might not mind having it around – snakes like the Cain toad-eating Keelback snake, or the “mobile mouse traps” carpet python and brown tree snakes, actually help keep your home and garden free of pests! If the snake is mildly venomous or highly venomous, we recommend removing it regardless of there being children and pets in the home.
