What to do if you come across a snake?
Encountering a snake can be a frightening experience, but it's important to stay calm and take the following steps to ensure your safety:
1. Stand still: Do not approach the snake, as this can provoke it and increase the chances of getting bitten. Give the snake plenty of space to freely move along and away.
2. Identify the snake: Try to get a good look at the snake from a safe distance. You can take a photo of the snake, if safe to do so and send it to our Gold Coast Snake Catcher for a free identification and advice.
3. Do not touch the snake: Even if you think the snake is harmless, it's illegal to touch it or move it. Some snakes can be easy misidentified, so it's better to err on the side of caution.
4. Call for help: If you're unsure of what to do, simple watch the snake and call for help immediately. Contact your local snake catcher to get immediate advice on what your options are.
5. Keep children and pets away: Keep children and pets away from the area where the snake was seen until the situation has been resolved.
