There was drama when Queensland snake catcher Zachery Richards got a call about a snake in a woman’s Scenic Rim home, he didn’t expect to find a 6-foot eastern brown snake laying on the bed.

“It was about 6 foot, touch bigger … decent size,” he told Brisbane Times.

The Maroon woman discovered the deadly snake when she went in to change the sheets on the bed, immediately calling Zachery’s Snake and Reptile Relocation to relocate the reptile.

For anyone else who finds a snake in their home, Richards’ advice was simple: “Leave it alone.”

“If it’s in the bedroom like that, close the door, put a towel underneath, and ring a professional. Eastern Browns are one of the top 10 deadliest snakes.”
