Massive brown snake found hiding in shopping centre carpark
Snake catcher Stuart McKenzie found a massive eastern brown snake hiding in a Sunshine Coast shopping centre carpark over the weekend.
Mr McKenzie, of Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7, was called to the Nambour Plaza carpark over the weekend to relocate the snake.
He said he'd been called to same shopping centre to relocate a number of eastern browns in his time, but this snake was one of the biggest at about 5.5ft.
He said it was hiding behind some water tanks and was away from cars and people.
"Just shows that snakes will always try and hide and retreat from humans if the opportunity presents itself," he wrote on Facebook.
With breeding season well and truly under way, Mr McKenzie said he was getting between five to 10 calls a day about brown snakes across the Coast.
