Gold Coast, Logan & Scenic Rim Reptiles
The Gold Coast, Logan & Scenic Rim region is home to an abundance of native reptiles including various species of snakes, lizards and turtles. Though most of our local reptiles are considered harmless, a few are capable of inflicting severe bites / injuries which are known to be life – threatening. These include the highly venomous Eastern Brown Snake and Red Bellied Black Snake which are regularly encountered within close proximity to residences.
It is not awfully uncommon to come across snakes and other reptiles around our homes as they travel in seek of shelter, food and an annual breeding companion. Unfortunately reptiles do not understand the dangers of human development and routinely enter situations which potentially pose significant dangers to people, pets and the reptiles themselves.
Our native reptiles play essential roles within natural ecosystems and are fully protected under the Nature Conservation Act 1992. At no stage do we support the unlawful harming or killing of any fauna species. Attempting to interfere with or bring harm to protected wildlife is exceedingly dangerous and carries heavy penalties.
