Golden Crowned Snake
Golden Crowned Snake

Not considered dangerous to humans. All crowned snakes are reluctant biters, relying more on bluff display than bite. They are weakly venomous and have tiny mouths and short fangs. They will generally rear up & 'mock strike' with mouth closed, more of a 'head butt'. If bitten, as with any snake bite, apply correct first aid and seek medical attention.

Fast, professional service. No harm to you, your family or the snake.
Snakes are often misunderstood. They do not look for people to bite, you are too big for them to eat. Yet bites occasionally do occur when you accidentally step on them or try to kill or threaten them, it’s a natural defense mechanism. If left alone, more often than not they will move on once they realize there is no food around for them.

Here, in beautiful South East Queensland we have many different species of snakes, some highly venomous but also some totally harmless. Unfortunately for the untrained eye, its difficult to identify them and this often causes unnecessary angst so its always safer to contact a licensed professional. Pat will happily give you free advice on what to do if you encounter the unwanted visitor in your home.

Snakes play an important role in our ecosystem, ie; they keep our mouse and rat population in check. In Australia, we forget that snakes make up a significant proportion of the middle-order predators that keep our natural ecosystems working. Without them the numbers of prey species would increase to unnatural levels and the predators that eat snakes struggle to find food.

First Aid | General Advice

Avoid washing the bite area because any venom left on the skin can help identify the snake. DO NOT apply a tourniquet, cut the wound or attempt to suck the venom out. It's not recommended to kill the snake for purposes of identification, because medical services do not rely on visual identification of the snake species.
For all snake bites, provide emergency care including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if needed. Call triple zero (000) for an ambulance. Apply a pressure immobilisation bandage and keep the person calm and as still as possible until medical help arrives. Antivenom is available for all venomous Australian snake bites.

PRESS TO DIAL 000

A pressure immobilisation bandage is recommended for anyone bitten by a venomous snake. This involves firmly bandaging the area of the body involved, such as the arm or leg, and keeping the person calm and still until medical help arrives. If possible, mark the site of the bite on the bandage with a pen.
