Ready, Steady, Goanna!: Snake Catcher Has to Be Quick to Nab Lizard

A Queensland snake catcher had to be on his toes to catch a goanna lizard after he was called to remove it from outside a home in Beerwah.

This footage, posted to Facebook on December 15, shows snake catcher Stuart McKenzie chasing the lizard around his customer’s yard before finally grabbing it by the tail.

McKenzie said he did not charge the woman for the callout as part of his Christmas giveaway.

“We wanted to give someone a free snake callout, and this was our lucky lady! She was absolutely stoked that we were able to catch the lizard and relocate him to a nice patch of bushland,” McKenzie said. Credit: Stuart McKenzie via Storyful
