Report a snake

If you find a snake in or around your house, do not touch the snake. Keep track of its approximate location and call a snake handler in your area:

Darwin, Alice Springs and Katherine: 1800 453 210. 
Tennant Creek:  0418 856 969 or 0498 711 837.

You might be asked to send a photo through for identification. It is helpful if you can include an approximate size and what date and time you saw the snake.

If you find an injured snake you should also report it.
