Can you spot the snake hiding on this veranda?
"BEFORE you shove your hands under anything, have a look," that's the main message from snake catcher Stuart McKenzie as he warned residents about snake activity.
Today Mr McKenzie's business Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 posted a picture of a particularly slippery serpent hiding on a family's veranda.
"Let's see if you can spot the snake," Mr McKenzie wrote.
The 1.5 metre carpet python was almost perfectly concealed - the only sign of the snake, was it's head was poking out from under a couch.
The comments section was flooded by terrified users.
"This just has me jumping at everything," one user wrote.
"There are snakes everywhere! Be afraid, be very afraid!" wrote another.
Mr McKenzie said spreading fear was the least of his intentions.
"The main reason we do (these posts) is just to make people aware of how tricky snakes can be and how sneaky they can be," he said.
"A majority of the time they're not easy to see
"Don't expect them to be hiding out in broad daylight."
The "Spot the snake" posts have become the a trademark for Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7.
In January the business posted a photo of a snake camouflaged in a family's back yard.
Only a glimpse of the reptile could be seen, peaking over the ledge of the pond.
Mr McKenzie urged residents to keep keen eye out for reptiles, and to contact a professional wildlife handler if a snake is found.
