Eastern brown Snake
Please Note : My callout fee is applicable regardless if the snake is caught or not. It is imperative that someone keeps an eye on the snake if you want it removed – they are experts at evasion. If the snake is in a building (house/shed/garage), seal off all exits to ensure it can be located and caught. In all cases, keep children and animals away from the snake.

Red-Bellied Black Snake
Commonly found in or around wetland areas, Red-Bellied Black Snakes are expert swimmers. Red-Bellied Black Snakes will also eat any small vertebrates they can find, but like Tiger Snakes, prefer frogs and fish. Red-Bellied Black Snakes are in general rather placid and their venomous bite is not considered deadly although it has the capacity to make you ill for a period of time.
Highland Copperhead Snake
Only found in the cooler climates of the highlands, Highland Copperheads are the most cold tolerant of all the species in our area. Like all snakes, Highland Copperheads are opportunistic feeders but as far as I know, they don’t have a preference. They are also known to eat juvenile snakes of other species. Highland Copperheads are very elusive and are quick to retreat from humans and pets. Their venom has the same toxicity as a Tiger Snake.
