A snake catcher from the Sunshine Coast was called to a home in Palmwoods to wrangle a red-bellied black snake
But what was found was a rubber snake.
The images shared on the business’ Facebook page show the red-belly curled up on the pavement.
It was uploaded with the caption ‘Not all of our calls are the adrenaline rush you may think!
‘Getting called to relocate this red-bellied black snake the other day turned out to be one of our easier jobs
‘Mostly because it turned out to be a rubber snake.’
Max Jackson, who uploaded the image onto the Facebook page but didn’t attend the call out, told Yahoo7 the man who made the call believed it was a real snake.
The snake turned out to be rubber, put out by the wife of the man who made the call. It was intended to scare away birds
Mr Jackson said from his understanding his wife put the snake there to deter birds.
He also said he personally gets three to four of these calls a year.
The man who made the call was still charged $95.
