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, please contact Reptile Rescue on 0499 116 690.

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 officers when they arrive.

If you find a snake in business hours and Reptile Rescue are unable to attend, Council officers may be able to assist you - contact us here.

If you find a snake out of business hours, we suggest contacting the Parks and Wildlife Service or Reptile Rescue on 0499 116 690.

If you're bitten by a snake, dial 000
