As the monsoon season starts, many reptiles choose the warm confines of the houses to take protection from the rains, since their nests or holes are filled with water. Not only should one be careful while lifting stones or other things from nooks and corners of the house, but also be careful not to harm these reptiles if one does find them hiding from rains.
The readers are advised to contact Pravin Katre on mobile number 09766777656, or Gaurang Waikar on 09970099910, whenever anyone finds snakes, reptiles or injured birds.
