Snakes

Snake on timber  

Tasmania is home to three species of snakes including Tiger, Copperhead and White-lipped.

If you find a snake on your property and require assistance, council rangers will relocate the snake away from the urban area.

It's important not to attempt to catch the snake or disturb it, rather stay a safe distance away and keep an eye on where it is so you can tell the ranger when they arrive.

If you find a snake in business hours, please contact us.

If you find a snake out of business hours, we suggest contacting the Parks and Wildlife Service or Reptile Rescue on 0407 565 181.

If you're bitten by a snake, dial 000.
