IT'S one of the biggest eastern brown snakes captured in the region since the weather warmed up.

While front fanged venomous snakes are usually found slithering on the ground, a two metre brown snake was found in the rafters of a Lockyer Valley shed.

Dave Wiedman from Toowoomba Snake Catchers 24/7 was called out to the address at Tent Hill at the weekend.

He was able to pull the snake from the rafters, quickly realising how massive it was. 

The agitated snake tried to wriggle free as Mr Wiedman attempted to put it in his bag.

He said: "This big boy was up in the rafters which is pretty uncommon for elapids (front fanged venomous snakes) to be found up so high, as they prefer to be on the ground.

"However there were was an abundance of massive rats that were everywhere, all climbing the rafters."

Mr Wiedman suggests with the hot weather people should start cleaning their yards so there are no places for snakes to hide.

There are fees for call outs. For more information search Toowoomba Snake Catchers 24/7 on Facebook.
