Catcher finds 'surfing snake' that likes to boogie

A TOOWOOMBA snake catcher has rounded-up a snake hiding under a boogie board.

Dave Wiedman from Toowoomba Snake Catchers 24/7 said a young eastern brown was found under a boogie board after taking a dip in the pool to cool off.

"So please remember if you are feeling the heat then the snakes are too. So stay alert," he said.

"Always call a snake catcher for removal."

Eastern browns can be identified by their brown skin and yellow bellies.

They also have distinctive dots.
