An Eastern brown snake that was retrieved from the top of a 6-ft Colorbond fence!! How it got up there is anyone’s guess, but certainly one of the craziest rescues yet!

Such a stunning snake. Love this part of the job, only hope this beauty stays safe and can find a new habitat to flourish in.

As it continues to warm, I’m starting to hear about more snake sightings in the #ACT and surrounding #NSW region! 🐍☀️✅

This beautiful #easternbrownsnake was photographed by Keith Kaney in North Canberra yesterday, and he very kindly let me share it with you. Thanks, Keith! 📸🌟

It really look...

Just because these beauties have retreated into their winter #brumation mode in the #bushcapital, it doesn't mean we've ceased moving! Brumation is when the snakes slow down their metabolism and go into a semi-docile state (#torpor) within some snug (a hole, woodpile etc.) until the environment s...

Gavin is very brave! A huge brown snake which had almost demolished a huge rat in our bin area. Luckily he caught it before it got through a hole in the fence and into the neighbours yard. Gavin was very quick to arrive and thoughtful in his process. Would 100% recommend - hopefully won't need his services again though!

Excellent and timely service. From making the initial call to having the snake removed took only 35 minutes. Gavin gave me great peace of mind and was able to respond so quickly I was able to make it to an important meeting just in time!

Gavin is ‘The Man’! No hesitation prompt and professional. After describing our situation between the cat and a 1 metre brown snake on the back lawn. Gavin’s first concern was the cat. He then gave clear safe instructions to keep an eye on the snake until his arrival. The retrieval was a sticky one with success. Previously I had heard Gavin on ABC radio, presenting his snake passion and participation in an ANU snake research project about urban snakes. It was most fitting to goggle Snake Removal and discover I had actually called Gavin from the 666 presentation. The rescued snake had an old previous injury, Gavin said, he will inspect the health of this snake before release elsewhere. Finally, Gavin also impressed me with demonstrating first aid bandaging principles, essential knowledge. ACT Snake removal is now directly in my phone list. Hopefully I will not need to call him again! Thanks so much Gavin.
