Snakes alive! Boom season for baby eastern brown snakes

Eastern Brown Snake in Grass
THE number of snakes being caught in the southern suburbs of Adelaide has doubled this year.
Snake Catchers Adelaide employee Cory Young said this snake season, which typically runs from October to March, he was catching about 15 snakes a day, up from eight the year before. “This year we haven’t had a lot of heatwaves, it’s been constant warm temperatures so they come out every day instead of every now and then,” Mr Young said. Mr Young said he had removed snakes from homes, schools, vet clinics and surf life saving clubs this season.
