Three-metre brown snake skin found

“It’s humungous” said Tropical Fruit World founder Bob Brinsmead after finding the nearly three-metre skin he identified as from a deadly brown snake.

Mr Brinsmead found the discarded, outgrown skin of the huge snake on the tennis court of his Duranbah property earlier this week.

“I wouldn’t have believed this unless I saw it. I would have said that’s got to be a carpet snake,” he said.

“But I’ve got the skin here to prove it. It would be something near a record size.”

Mr Brinsmead, a former Tweed Shire deputy mayor who has lived on the property since 1972, measured the skin at two metres 71 centimetres.
