A five-foot-long Indian rock python was rescued from close to a bus cease in Delhi’s Saket, non-profit Wildlife SOS stated Tuesday.
A passerby first observed the big reptile beneath the foot-over bridge close to the bus cease. The incident was then reported to Wildlife SOS, a member of the NGO stated. A Wildlife SOS crew rescued the python from the slender house and launched it into the wild.
The Indian rock python is a non-venomous python species native to tropical and subtropical areas of the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.
With rains flushing out snakes from their burrowed holes and shelters, wildlife rescuers have been receiving numerous “misery calls” from Delhi-NCR, the NGO member stated.
“We get most variety of calls about reptile sightings within the monsoon season. From cobras and pythons to rat snakes and sand boas, our groups have been on their toes,” Wasim Akram, the deputy director of particular tasks on the NGO, stated.
