A DEADLY eastern brown snake has been found in a room used for pet dogs.

Renowned snake wrangler Dave Wiedman was called to a property at Murphys Creek yesterday afternoon.

Mr Wiedman, from Toowoomba Snake Catchers 24/7, found the snake near a laundry.

High temperatures had apparently forced the snake to look for somewhere cooler.

"In 40 degree heat this guy was looking to find somewhere to cool off," Mr Wiedman said.

 He posted a video of the incident, saying it was a tricky capture.

"We have a quite large brown snake in the toilet," he said before quickly grabbing the dangerous snake by its tail.

The snake measured about 1.8 metres long.

Mr Wiedman is a licenced snake catcher who releases the serpents he catches away from where they are caught.

Eastern brown snakes are considered the world's second most venomous land snake and are native to Australia.
