The heat of December typically sees a slight reduction in the number of snakes sighted during the day and a marked increase in the movement of nocturnal snakes. Two Golden-crowned Snakes were found this month in the suburbs of Tamborine and Currumbin. Being strictly nocturnal they are a good indicator of increased night time movement. Other less frequently encountered nocturnal snakes noted include two Dwarf Crowned Snakes from Beechmont and Tugun, a large Eastern small-eyed Snakes from Mudgeeraba and a Rough-scaled Snake from a home near Canungra.
Venomous species are most certainly on the move with some sizeable snakes being recorded. We have seen two Eastern Brown Snakes this month that were in excess of 1500mm or 5 ft in the old scale. The largest was a 1700mm specimen captured at Upper Coomera.
A photo was sent in for identification that showed two Yellow faced Whip Snakes in the throngs of male/male combat. This is a clear indicator that this species is still in a reproductive mode. This species is one of the more common of our smaller venomous species found throughout the suburbs of Gold Coast.
Of course the ever reliable Carpet Pythons are making themselves known with the most impressive a 3 metre specimen recorded by our snake catcher at The Gap. (Visit our Blog page for previous month Wrap Ups.)
The RSPCA snake catcher referral service is no longer provided through their general wildlife assistance service. Call the above Gold Coast snake catchers for assistance.
Gold Coast and Brisbane snake removal operators listed here have been referred to by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) and the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP) for over 20 years due to their reliability and expertise. Permits for snake catchers specific to snake removal from homes and buisnesses are issued by this department.
