High Heat Brings Out Snakes, Be Aware and Take Care

Beware and think before you take any action. The summer temperatures are on the rise, and so are the number of incidents when snakes were spotted around the city. These slithery creatures come out of their burrows when the temperatures rise, and that’s the reason why they are spotted all around.


Surprisingly, snake rescuers from the city say that many snakes they had rescued were from densely populated areas. Of course, there have been quite a few sightings on the periphery. The Friends of Snakes Society (FOSS), an NGO working for the conservation of snakes in India, has shared that it has rescued around 600 snakes in February. Incidentally, the number went up to 800 by March.


In April alone, more than 800 snakes were rescued. And the numbers only grew in April and May as compared to February. Also, one needs to know that the season is breeding season for two varieties of snakes in India. One happens to be the Indian cobra or the spectacled cobra and the rat snake.


However, FOSS members say that the number of SOS calls would come down gradually in May. They share that outside temperature is an indicator for the snakes to breed. While the breeding period of cobras starts in February and continues till April, the breeding period of rat snakes starts in April and goes on for a month. However, by May, the breeding comes down, and rescue operations too come down.


Some things to remember during the summer months – trim ornamental plants for more visibility. Store materials on raised platforms, as they could attract frogs, snakes, rats, and lizards. Also, materials on the ground must be prodded with a stick for safety reasons.
