Stuart McKenzie from Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers issued a warning to the public on Wednesday after capturing a huge red belly after it slithered through a school.
Mr McKenzie said his last few weeks have been ‘ridiculous’ after catching several enormous reptiles in snake breeding season.
The experienced catcher told Daily Mail Australia he had seen a number of large adult snakes on the move through the region.
‘It’s been hectic,’ Mr McKenzie said. ‘It’s that time of year. All the big adult snakes are out and about and mating and all the boys are fighting each other.’

Mr McKenzie was called to relocate an enormous red belly black snake on Friday after it snuck its way through the playground to the back of a school.
‘It was very big for a red belly,’ he said. ‘A good four-and-a-half to five foot and fat and chunky.
‘The teachers did a great job of keeping the kids away.’
Mr McKenzie estimated the snake was around eight-years-old and among a wealth of elder snakes travelling about on the Sunshine Coast lately.
‘Everyone’s coming out to play,’ he said.
