Well it appears snake breeding season is in full swing!

Two male Eastern Brown Snakes have been caught feuding over a female on a property at Eumundi on the Sunshine Coast.

In the footage, the slithering serpents can be seen wrestling as they desperately try to overpower each other to get the attention of their lady love interest.

It took two snake catchers to catch the pair, with Mr Huntley writing it was a hectic job.

“HECTIC!! Today I was called to a home in Eumundi to relocate 2 Eastern Browns from her garden path. The 2 males were fighting over a female which was just under the concrete slab. We could see her after we got these 2 but without demolition she wasn’t coming out haha,” Mr Huntley wrote alongside the video.

“It was a hectic callout but was definitely the best callout I’ve had in ages!”

Eumundi is known to be a brown snake hot spot and Spring is typical breeding season, making sightings of the serpents much more likely.
