Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7, a snake catching company located in Australia, shared a video on Facebook showing a venomous eastern brown snake swimming in the water at a beach.
The snake catcher’s company responds to calls in the Sunshine Coast, Noosa, and Deception Bay regions. A beachgoer was visiting the Point Cartwright dog walking area when he spotted the snake, took the video, and shared it with the snake catchers.
The video shows the very lengthy eastern brown, appearing to be about five feet long, making its way to the shoreline and holding its head up as it looked ahead towards where it was going.
Fortunately, no one messed with the snake so no one was injured. Dog walkers standing closest to the snake held their dogs close to them and kept a sharp eye on it just in case the snake made a turn towards them.
Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 wrote on Facebook, “We received a heap of calls about this snake and I just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone down there for staying calm and keeping their distance from the snake and keeping dogs away from it as well.”
