Sinister find inside Queensland family's roof

·2-min read

A Queensland snake catcher has shared a horrifying picture of the "haul" he collected while inspecting a roof on Wednesday.

Stu from Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 explained on Facebook one of his colleagues, Dave, was conducting a roof inspection at a family's home.

"He brought down over 30 snake skins out of the family's roof space, and there was probably another 20 skins up there," Stu explained on Facebook. 

"The kids at the house loved it and had plenty of questions to ask Dave about snakes."

In the photos the snake catcher is seen holding two handfuls of snake skins.

"I would sell the house ASAP," someone joked, while someone else suggested it was time to burn the house down.

Several people on the post were horrified, however, the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers assured people having snakes in your roof isn't so bad.

"Snakes are great to have in your roof as they eat all the rodents," the post said. 

"Who doesn’t love free pest control!!"

"Time to sell the house and relocate," someone said. 

"I agree they are good rodent control, but I don't think I'd sleep well knowing that."

Back in March, Reid Newell from Snake Catchers Brisbane & Gold Coast found nearly 60 snake skins in a family's roof.

Snakes can be found in all kinds of places. A girl on the Sunshine Coast noticed something slink out of the laundry basket she’d brought inside back in March and called the snake catchers.

The teen called the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers for help and after searching the house, they found a baby red-bellied black snake curled up inside her asthma inhaler.
