Employees of Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 said that they responded to a call from the Waterfront Hotel, about a snake in the bathroom.

An employee named Richie, caught the small snake. The snake managed to conceal itself for some time before it was seen.

Luckily, it was a common tree snake and not poisonous. The snake catcher revealed that the reptiles love to hide in cold tiles in order to cool off from the outside heat.

“Richie was called to the Waterfront Hotel in Maroochydore, where he found a snake perched under the urinal in the men’s toilets.

“The snake was quite concealed so anyone could have gone for a number one and not even notice it. Luckily, it was a harmless snake and not something venomous.

“It was quite hot outside so I suspect the snake was after a cool place to escape from the heat of the day. Cool tiled bathrooms and toilets provide the perfect place for snakes to do this so it’s a good idea to keep your doors closed and have screens where possible in Queensland,” Richie wrote on Facebook.
