A Queensland snake catcher who had just rescued a snake from a Sunshine Coast family's yard, had to make a return trip when a second snake made an appearance too.

Stuart McKenzie, of Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers, was called to a home in Diddillibah on Saturday, to remove a brown snake from their yard.

"I came out and relocated the first stunningly striped brown snake and about 45 minutes later they called me back with a second one," Mr McKenzie said.

"They have had eastern brown snakes relocated from their home in the past few weeks."

He said he believed the first one was a female and the second was a male, most likely looking for the female to breed with her.

"The second one didn't even care about me at all until I grabbed him. He was definitely a man on a mission," he said.

Mr McKenzie told Nine.com.au because it is breeding season, a lot of larger snakes are on the move.

"If you see a snake in your home or yard, please keep all kids, pets and adults away from the snake," he said.

"Keep an eye on it from a safe distance and give your local snake catcher a call."
