A Queensland snake catcher made a startling find when responding to a recent call for assistance.
Luke Huntley of Snake Catcher Noosa was called out to a home in Tinbeerwah for a roof check, and he “found it to be quite the handful.”
In spite of the fact that he did not come across any snakes, the experienced catcher was able to amass a total of 32 snake skins.
“There were a lot more up there, but I couldn’t fit into those small spaces to grab them because,” he added.
According to Huntley, it seemed as though brown snakes, tree snakes, and pythons had been shedding their skins under the roof for “years and years.”
The snake catcher claimed that during the colder months, the snakes and other reptiles used their homes as a source of warmth.
“This is typical of a Queensland roof; perhaps not this many skins per house but quite common to have a snake or three in your roof at some point,” he said.
“If you’re new to the area: welcome to Queensland guys.
“Welcome to Queensland, gents, if this is your first time in the area.
“Don’t worry, there are a lot of snakes here, but they won’t bother you or try to get you in any way.”
