Busy week for reptile rescuers in Agra

Agra, May 28 (SocialNews.XYZ) Trained snake hunters in the city have struggled to respond to distress calls from panicked people, following a series of reptile sightings weeks before the monsoon.

From rescuing a 6-foot-long Indian rat snake from a home’s electrical fuse panel in Bodla to a venomous 5-foot-long spectacled cobra from Shri Shyam Mahavidhyalaya and a monitor lizard under a home’s blender grinder At Awas Vikas Colony, the Wildlife SOS team had a busy week.


With rising mercury levels in northern India, snakes are emerging from their burrows and pits to seek refuge in cooler places such as houses and factories.

Team members should be extra careful when extracting distressed snakes, as they want to avoid further agitating the snakes, which could lead to casualties. The team received a panicked call about a Cobra sighting at Shri Shyam Mahavidhyalaya in Karahara, Agra. The poisonous snake was in the meeting room. Since the lobby is being renovated, the cobra decided to take refuge in an empty paint bucket in the lobby and was safely rescued by Wildlife SOS’s rapid response unit later.

The team also rescued a monitor lizard hiding under a mixer grinder in Awas Vikas settlement and a 4ft long rat snake from the drain pipe of a Krishna Dham settlement house in Sikandra, Agra.

All reptiles were kept under observation for a few hours and then released into their natural habitat.

Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder and CEO of Wildlife SOS, said, “Our rescue team is well trained to handle such delicate rescue operations and ensure the snakes are rescued without causing harm. We are grateful to people for reaching out to Wildlife. SOS in times of aid, as we can ensure the safety of all involved.”

Baijuraj MV, Director of Conservation Projects for Wildlife SOS, said: “Snakes are ectothermic animals and cannot regulate their internal body temperature. months, the Wildlife SOS rapid intervention unit carried out numerous rescues of snakes and other wild animals. If you ever spot an animal in distress, alert the Wildlife SOS team on our helpline.
