- Snake catcher caught frightening brown snake two meters as thick as cola can
- The deadly snake was found in a garden on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland
- Stuart McKenzie said he couldn't believe the snake was more than two meters long
A deadly two-meter brown snake has been caught in a suburban home and snake catchers claim it is the largest they have ever seen.
Stuart McKenzie, a snake catcher from the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, said one of his workers was called to a house in Moololah Valley where they found the snake in the garden.
Images uploaded to the Facebook page of the Sunshine Coast snake catchers showed that McKenzie was holding the huge snake by its tail.

The caption reads: & # 39; Today we have moved the largest brown snake I have ever seen.
& # 39; A huge thank you to Donnie for catching and moving this giant from a house in the Beerwah / Mooloolah region. & # 39;
McKenzie said the snake was about two meters long and so & # 39; thick like a coke & # 39; used to be.
He wrote: & # 39; It was hard to hold. It was so thick and healthy. & # 39;
The snake catcher later clarified that brown snakes rarely reach more than two meters, & # 39; so every inch left is a big problem & # 39 ;.
& # 39; At one point I had the snake tail point at about my height and the snake still had about 20 cm on the floor and I am about 188 cm tall & he said.
Mr. McKenzie told Daily Mail Australia that his worker, Donnie, had to chase the snake.
& # 39; It was pretty elusive because it was an older snake, Donnie had to run and hunt a little to bring him in, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; It was the largest I have ever seen … When I held it up, it was heavy and my arm was really sore. & # 39;

Many were shocked by the size of the deadly creature and some call it a & # 39; monster & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Better you than me mate, that's a monster, & # 39; a user commented.
& # 39; I don't mind snakes, but if I found out that I was really worried, & # 39; wrote another.
& # 39; That's a huge brown snake, you call that a killing machine, & # 39; another person said.
Oriental brown snakes: the deadliest snake breed in Australia
The eastern brown snake is the species most responsible for deaths caused by snake bites in Australia.
Although they are dangerous, they will always try to avoid a confrontation and will only attack as a last resort if they are threatened.
They are native to Eastern Australia, but can be found anywhere between the coast and the central desert.
It lives in a wide range of habitats, but mainly occurs in open grasslands, meadows and forests, and they help farmers reduce rodents.
They can be more than two meters long and can move with surprising speed on hot days.
The color can vary from uniformly brown to gray or dark brown, while their belly can be cream, yellow or light orange with darker orange spots.
The females produce clutches of up to 30 eggs in late spring or early summer.
