Series 2 of Aussie Snake Wranglers delivers more deadly snakes, more crazy characters and even more heart-pounding captures than ever before! Audiences will be thrust into the deadly world of snake catching where even the smallest mistake could have lethal consequences. Set against the backdrop of Queensland’s picturesque Sunshine Coast, our snake wranglers will come up against some of the most venomous snakes in the world.
In each episode our team, led by venomous snake guru, Stuart McKenzie, will answer up to 30 distress calls a day from everyday Aussies whose homes have been invaded by these fearsome reptiles. From eastern browns terrorizing suburban backyards to red-bellied black snakes infiltrating wall cavities – there’s even a carpet python that’s laid her eggs on a young family’s front doorstep!
Time is always the enemy as snakes can disappear in the blink of an eye, but Stuart and his crew won’t stop until the snake is caught and relocated - even if that means putting their own lives on the line!
Watch Tuesdays 8.30pm from September 13 on the National Geographic channel, available on Foxtel, Sky and Fetch.
