The Brown Tree Snake is a nocturnal snake that is commonly found in well wooded and hinterland areas. These snakes are quite long and slender making them capable of fitting into small gaps in the ceiling and walls of houses. Brown Tree Snakes feed primarily on birds, small mammals and frogs. This species is particularly known for readily performing a threat display when disturbed. After each breeding season pregnant females lay between 6-12 eggs.
It’s important to realise that many species of snake can vary in colour, pattern and size. This often makes it very hard to make a positive identification of the snake. You should always assume that a snake is highly venomous, keep your family and pets at a safe distance and call a Gold Coast snake catcher.
