Australian man reportedly died after he was bitten by a snake.
The incident happened in the Kensington Grove area, which is about 50 kilometers from Brisbane.
The eastern brown snake, which is Australia’s second-most venomous species, was believed to have killed the man.
A toxicology report has not yet been completed.
Since the introduction of antivenom programs, fatal snake bites have become rare.
Less than an hour after the incident, another person was taken to a hospital after reportedly being bitten by a snake in Mount Garnet, which is about 161 kilometers from the city of Cairns.
According to Tony Harrison, the operators of Snake Catchers on the Gold Coast and Brisbane have been receiving a large number of calls regarding snake season.
According to Harrison, during the peak of the year, they receive around 10 to 15 calls a day.
He said that people should avoid interacting with snakes as it could cause them to defend themselves.
Julian White, an associate professor of Toxinology at a children’s and women’s hospital in South Australia, previously taught first aid techniques to people who might come across a venomous snake.
Some spider and snake bites require immediate medical attention.
To minimize the risk of injury, apply a thick bandage over the bitten part of the body and secure it over the top of the victim’s clothes.
Keep the limb still with the use of a sling.
