It’s getting warmer across the city, which means snake season is well and truly upon us.

Snake catcher Mark Pelley told the Herald Sun that it’s peak period for snakes to be breeding and hunting, after their “brumation” slumber.

“They’ve got through that cold period and now they’ll be out in full force,” he said.

The warning comes after an 8 year old almost sat on a brown snake earlier this week.
