Listen to what they have to say. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
Our campaign is striving to put an end to the illegal and unethical use of snakes by these catchers who cannot be called "rescuers" by any standards. They end up putting not just snakes' lives, and their own on the line, but also of the hundreds of impressionable young men and women who mimic their dangerous stunts!

Snakes are not toys.. over 45000 people die in India every single year due to snake bites. Performing stunts with them like this does NOT make you 'cool' or a 'saviour'. Everytime a stunt like this is performed, these handlers are actually disrespecting the true victims and their families. 
Email us at jose@indiansnakes.org if you come across any such instances, especially on social media.

Slender worm #snake... The first I've photographed in Hauz Khas!

These little harmless critters are small and just like the blind snakes, look strikingly similar to worms.... Hence the name worm snake!

The 'Exclusive' one in the early morning...
.........................
Banded Krait is one of the krait spp. found in India. Unlike its notorious cousin, the Common Krait, this krait is much less harmful to us as it is quite sluggish in nature. However, during night it becomes much agile and aggressive. I made this image with a nikon D7200 and a nikkor 50mm af/1.8D lens. Before approaching i made sure that the snake was completely out of stress. :-) #snake ,#snakes ,#snakesofinstagram ,#indiansnakes ,#krait ,#elapid,#reptiles, #conservation, #serpent, #eyes,#animallite,#macro_brilliance,#magestic_wildlife,#snakes_captures,#Photography ,#exclusive_wildlife,#global4nature,#animal_sultans,#nikonasia,#theindianphotographs,#indianphotography,#venomous ,#snakelove ,#niftyfifty ,#reptilesofinstagram ,#reptilelove ,#Wildlife ,#wildlifephotography ,#indianwildlife ,#ig_calcutta

Rat snake
#rat #snake #reptile #india #indiansnakes
Indian rat snake, the most commonly encountered snake species in India. This is the video of an Indian rat snake I had taken while doing wildlife photography. I encountered this little champ when it was busy in search of food and not aware of me. Snakes have very poor eyesight and are oblivious to what is going on around them while foraging. This video will prove that how snakes overlook us if we stay absolutely still in front of them. (I have tried Indian Cobra too in this manner but could not film.) In the middle of this video you could also watch how it tries to climb my leg but then changes its mind to go beyond me. You will hear my voice in this video "Ruko Ruko" means "stop stop" not addressing to that snake but to an approaching person who could be a spoiler while filming this snake but eventually the snake senses the movement of him and leaps to escape the danger. धामण हा एक बिनविषारी सर्प आहे व तो महाराष्ट्रात तसेच जवळजवळ संपूर्ण भारतात आढळतो. वेगाने सरपटणाऱ्या ह्या सापाला इंग्रजी भाषेत "काॅमन रॅट स्नेक" व शास्त्रीय भाषेत "टायास म्युकोसस" असे म्हणतात. बहुतेक वेळा धामणला विषारी नाग समजून मारले जाते. उंदीर आणि घुस हे मुख्य खाद्य असल्यामुळे धामणला इंग्रजीत Common Rat Snake असे संबोधले जाते. #snake #snakesofinstagram #reptile #reptilesofinstagram #snakes #animalsofinstagram #herpetology #instagood #instadaily #animallover #snakelover #reptilelover #animals #wild #friends #caughtintheact #practical #indian #snakesofindia #india #indiansnakes #indianwildlifeofficial #life #wildlife #trekking #travel #explore #nature #mumbai #maharashtra

Cat Snake (Boiga Trigonata) rescued from a terrace and spot released by team Raksha, Phulera.

Common cat snake a.k.a. Gamma snake is a mildly venomous species of snake found throughout India. They are medium sized species growing upto 3-4feet . The color is light or dark brown with a pattern of zigzag markings. A prominent ‘Y’ mark can be seen on their head. They usually have smooth scales, which are not glossy. 
Mildy venomous is not potent for humans but potent enough to paralyse a small prey like lizard or gecko.  #snakeconservation  #Snakehelpline #Savesnakes #Savereptile #Reptileconservation #jaipursnakehelpline #indiansnakes  #jaipur  #wildlifeconservation #rakshajaipur

A beautiful dark grey phase forstens cat snake, Boiga forsteni. Found by one auntie in devabag sleeping on one of her ornamental plants in her garden. No matter how much I remonstrated she wanted it removed, so we've released this one in our jungle a few Kms down the road. These snakes are amazing to have, are gentle and inquisitive snakes and as always they mean us no harm #indiansnakes #india #snakesofinstagram #snakesofindia #thetribegoa #goa #agonda #palolem #canacona #protectnature #naturegram #naturelover #snakerescue #wildliferescue #animalrescue #reptilelover #reptiles #conservation #education #coexistence #respect

Spectacled Cobra aka Indian Cobra. 
Cobra's always fascinate me and I never miss a chance to shoot them. Here's a juvenile cobra which we rescued last night, standing tall against the light and giving me a perfect backlit image.

COMMON WOLF SNAKE #indiansnakes #indianreptiles
A very beautiful lighter colouration juvenile Indian rock python, Python molurus. Rescued in the middle of the night from a small local farm, spotted against some firewood resting against the mud wall of the house.

Saw-scaled #viper sighted in the outskirts of #Chennai, earlier this month.

Considered one of the Big-4 #snakes responsible for many deaths across the country, this #venomous (hematoxic) #species is really not fond of entering #human habitation! It's tiny size often fools people into making them mistake it for a harmless #snake or they accidentally trod on it, when it's taking shade under big #leaves etc. Bites from this snake can easily be prevented by taking basic precautions like using a stick at a safe distance to turn over leaves, or poke under hedges (if you absolutely have to!), wearing closed toe shoes etc when in areas prone to saw-scaled #vipers. As with most #indiansnakes, the idea is simple- don't put your hands and feet, if you're​ not sure what's there!  For more on this species and other #Big4, I highly recommend watching Romulus Whitaker's survival guide to Big-4 which is up on the @madras_crocodile_bank_trust channel on YouTube

Bronze back tree #snake, sighted in the outskirts of #Chennai, #TamilNadu

These guys are non-venomous and shy, arboreal #IndianSnakes. But because of their shiny colour people tend to kill these relatively thin #snakes on sight, thinking they're dangerous!

Hump nosed Pit Viper 🐍
Always wanted to see this beauty and finally was lucky to see this in Old Magazine House, Dandeli in Oct 2017
It is completely nocturnal and terrestrial and is very well camouflaged in dry leaves , such that one can even step on it being it's bite victim. 
P.S - this particular individual was rescued and hence is on a small branch before it was released safely to its habitat.
