TOOWOOMBA'S intrepid snake catchers have been at it again, this time catching a yellow-faced whip-snake in the city's west.

Dave Wiedman from Toowoomba Snake Catchers 24/7 was called out to Glenvale to remove what was thought to be an eastern brown from a business.

But when he arrived he found it was a yellow-faced whip-snake.

"And it was a biter," he said.

A video shows Mr Wiedman reaching into a shelves to grab the snake.

The small yet energetic snake then wriggles to get free.

Mr Wiedman said they were venomous but not lethal.

"They give you a bit of a sting if they bite you but that's all," he said.

The snake was nearly fully grown, with Mr Wiedman calling it a "beautiful" specimen.

Whip snakes are slender and fast-moving snakes that are active during the day.

They are commonly found crossing roads in farmland areas in the Lockyer Valley and Darling Downs.

Whip snakes are so called because of the way they whip their tails, but is unknown if they also nae nae.
