Snakes and lizards are a highly valued part of healthy native ecosystems. Port Augusta is home to a number of species of snakes and lizards. While some snake species are highly venomous, they are unlikely to attack you. However, never try and approach a snake for a closer look, and control the curiosity of your pets, to ensure we can all live safely together.
If you have a snake that needs to be removed from your property, please contact Mick Froud (licenced snake catcher) 0418 823 784. A small fee will apply and is not the responsibility of Council.
