Luke Huntley, who runs a snake-catching business in the Noosa coastal area of Queensland, encountered the colorful reptile on Tuesday. A family called Huntley to their home in the small beach town of Peregian after they found the blue phase common tree snake on their veranda, and asked him to remove it.

Also known as dendrelaphis punctulata, common tree snakes can grow up to 6.5 ft long. They are most often yellow-ish green, brownish-green or black. Blue snakes are unusual, according to the Queensland Department of Environment and Science.

Scientists discover kangaroo painted more than 17,000 years ago is Australia's oldest rock painting

  Scientists discover kangaroo painted more than 17,000 years ago is Australia's oldest rock painting A painting of a kangaroo in Western Australia is the oldest known rock art in the country, according to scientists, who say radiocarbon-dating analysis shows it was created more than 17,000 years ago. © Peter Veth, Balanggarra Aboriginal Corporation, Pauline Heaney, Damien Finch An indigenous leader inspects the rock painting of the kangaroo in Kimberley, Western Australia. The kangaroo depiction was among a number of rock paintings first recorded by researchers in the 1990s in the Kimberley region, which holds one of the world's largest collections of indigenous rock art.

He told Newsweek it was "very rare" for him to find blue snakes and they were "definitely" more common in the summer, the current season in Australia.

In Huntley's six years as a catcher, he has seen around 20 blue snakes, he added.

"I get a few. But they're super-rare," he said. The Noosa region of Australia's Sunshine Coast gets more than most areas, according to Huntley.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen Celebrate 12th Wedding Anniversary: 'How Blessed Am I??'

  Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen Celebrate 12th Wedding Anniversary: 'How Blessed Am I??' The couple shares son Benjamin Rein, 11, and daughter Vivian Lake, 8, and Brady also has a 13-year-old son John "Jack" Edward with ex Bridget Moynahan . The whole Brady bunch was on hand to watch as he played in the Super Bowl for the 10th time in his career. It was his first time doing so for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who he joined last year after two decades with the New England Patriots.

Common tree snakes are found across Australia's east and its tropical northern areas, from Western Australia's Kimberley region to Cape York and Torres Strait in Queensland, reaching into New South Wales and Papua New Guinea. They inhabit areas such as rainforest, woodlands and tropical gardens, but are also found in trees, residential gardens and people's homes. They are common in the city of Brisbane.

Huntley's photo gained hundreds of likes and dozens of comments on Facebook. One user wrote: "We had one near the pool last year. Until then, I had no idea they could be blue!"

Another said: "He sure is beautiful......and a surprise.....I didn't know there were blue snakes until you posted one a short time ago! Thank you!"

Although their striking color may suggest otherwise, these snakes are "not dangerous at all," Huntley said. Common tree snakes have no venom and spend their days searching for frogs and skinks (lizards) to eat. At night they hunker down in tree hollows, foliage and crevices.
