Queensland Catcher Captures Flighty Brown Snake Hiding Under First Aid Cage

An Australian snake catcher safely removed a “flighty” brown snake that was hiding underneath a first aid cage on a Queensland construction site.

This footage was posted to Facebook, and shows Stuart McKenzie from Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 removing the snake. In the caption, McKenzie said, “As I was adjusting my grip the snake shot back up towards my hand and my initial reaction of lifting my hand out of the way caused the snake to go in the air above my head.”

The dramatic moment passed safely, according to McKenzie. Releasing the snake, he said, “All good. No dramas. Nobody got bitten, that’s the main thing.” Credit: Stuart McKenzie via Storyful
