Gurugram, Sep 10 (IANS) A more than 10 feet long Indian rock python, weighing over 10 kg, was rescued from a kitchen on the third floor of a flat in upscale DLF area in Gurgaon, a wildlife activist said on Monday.
The python hid itself in the kitchen and was spotted late on Sunday night. “It might have used the stairs or a tree near the balcony of the flat,” Anil Gandass, the activist who rescued the snake, told IANS.
He said such a python was also rescued from a kitchen in the nearby Sheetla Colony. “It could not be established how the creature managed to reach the slab of the kitchen.”
On July 27, an Indian rock python and a spectacled cobra were rescued from a luxury hotel and a private cricket academy respectively here in the foothills of Aravali mountain range.
Gandass said more than 250 snakes of different species were rescued in the last three months from different parts of Gurgaon.
The rescued creatures were being released in the Aravali forest, he added.
Gandass said: “The good thing is that instead of killing these creatures, people now informs us so that the reptiles can be rescued. People are getting more conscious.”
