    Nuisance of pythons has increased everywhere. From the forest they move towards city. Everywhere news of pythons can be heard. Again why artificial incubation? Once the pythons are noticed near the residential area, no one from forest dept comes. Evenif they come, they need money. Catching from the spot it is visible and leaving other side of the road little faraway from where its caught.....!!

    Snake lovers can keep it at their house. Why leave them in forest? Finally they end up causing loss for poor farmers. Who will pay compensation to farmers for the loss caused by these snakes?

    This is the dumbest comment ever witnessed on daijiworld probably. Did you not study in school that snakes eat rats and help farmers? And snakes were here even before we were,we are the ones who have occupied their houses. And for your kind information the snakes were released in the forest,pls don't have delusional imaginations without knowing the basics of things.

    Very good initiative! I fully support this. Also, If you think about it, It's their land and their ecosystem. WE humans are living in their land by man-made property papers and agreements.

    Wildlife has evolved over millions of years ago. Snakes are one of the integral part of the eco system and helps in controlling the rodent population. Indian Rock Pythons are a species of snakes that are protected under Schedule I of the Wildlife Protection Act (1972). These snakes are given equal protection to that of tiger, lion/leopard etc... So we do need to save snakes for a better tomorrow! Now out of these 8 eggs that have hatched only 1 or 2 will make it to the adulthood and nature will take care of the rest.
