THERE have been re-
ports of snakes seen out of
hibernation already, and with
even warmer weather fast ap-
proaching, more will be out
During the warmer months
snakes become active out of
brumation (a hibernation-like
state), looking to breed and
Department for Environ-
ment and Water (DEW)
spokesperson Dr Deb Kelly
said there are snakes all
over South Australia, with
Eastern brown snakes found
“Each region has its local
specialty - and most are ven-
omous,” Dr Kelly said.
“Adelaide Hills has the red-
bellied black snake, the River
Murray and South East has the
tiger snake, Eyre and Yorke
peninsulas, especially near the
coast, are known places for
death adders, with Kangaroo
Island having copperheads
and mulga snakes up north.
“Just because you’ve never
seen a snake on your property
doesn’t mean they aren’t there,
so you should always be care-
ful about putting your hands or
feet into spots you can’t see,
like long grass or that pile of
junk behind the shed.”
You can avoid snakes on

yard clear of long grass and

generally shy and will not
attack unless provoked, so if
you spot one it’s best to leave

yourself. This is when most
If you see a snake inside,
watch where it goes, keep chil-
dren and pets away, then call
a snake catcher to remove it.
If the snake is outside and
heading towards bushland or
a field, leave it alone. Most
snakes are not aggressive and
won’t chase you.
If a person is bitten, call
000. Wrap a pressure bandage
tightly over the area of the bite,
then use a second bandage and
splints to immobilise the limb.
Keep the person calm and still
until you can get medical help.
Sun’s out, snakes out
Watch out for snakes now the weather is warming up.
