Snake catcher warns snakes on the move in wet weather

A SNAKE catcher is warning people to be wary of snakes looking for dry ground as the predicted wet weather approaches.

Andrew Smedley, who operates in the Lockyer Valley, warned that snakes would be on the move across south-east Queensland if the heavy rain weather authorities have forecast eventuates.

"Snakes will be on the move looking for higher ground and somewhere dry to take shelter," he said.

"Easter browns, red-bellies, etc that live under rocks and logs will be forced out looking for somewhere dry and warm.

"That could be your house or shed.

"Just keep an eye out because they will definitely be on the move with all this rain that's forecast."

Not long after issuing his warning on Facebook, Mr Smedley was called to retrieve a python.

"I got a call to go get this python that was in a bin fall of water," he said.

"Ha ha, so much for looking for a dry place."
