Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers’ Stuart McKenzie issued a warning to the public on Wednesday after capturing a massive red belly after it slipped through a school.
Mr McKenzie said his final weeks have been ‘ridiculous’ after capturing several huge reptiles in the snakes’ breeding season.
The veteran catcher told Daily Mail Australia that he had seen a number of large adult snakes on their way through the region.
“It’s been hectic,” said Mr. McKenzie. It’s that time of year. All the large adult snakes are out and about and mate and all the boys fight each other. ‘

“It was very big for a red belly,” he said. ‘A good four and a half to one and a half meters and thick and thick.
“The teachers did a great job of keeping the children away.”
Mr. McKenzie estimated that the snake was about eight years old and is among a wealth of older snakes that have been touring the Sunshine Coast lately.
“Everyone comes out to play,” he said.
Mr. McKenzie and his team also moved a huge carpet python (pictured) under a trash can in Nambour
He posted a video to his Facebook page on Monday after discovering a huge carpet python under a garbage can in Nambour.
“The snakes are getting bigger,” Mr. McKenzie captioned the video.
‘It’s pretty crazy how this big snake somehow fits under the little trash can. This is one of the largest carpet pythons I’ve caught in years! ‘
Mr. McKenzie warned Queenslanders to keep an eye out for more large snakes during breeding season.
“When you find a snake, first get all people, children, and pets away from the snake,” he said.
“If you want to move him, keep an eye on him at a safe distance and call your local snake catcher.”
Mr. McKenzie warned Queenslanders because there are many large adult snakes on the move
