Just recently, a young conservationist came face to face with a rare Indian snake: the Red Coral Kukri. The snake was spotted with the help of an infrared night-vision camera in the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary, in India.
The environmentalist who made this most exciting discovery told the press that “I could not believe my eyes when the infrared night-vision camera caught a deep orange colored snake creeping near a 'Rangoy' vine in KWS.”
Given the fact that said snake is an endangered species, green-heads now push for stricter conservation projects to be implemented in this part of the world, on the grounds of rescuing this species from extinction.
Most biologists claim that the Red Coral Kukri managed to survive in this region because, in the case of the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary, human-nature interactions are kept down to a minimum, in the sense that no touristic or other similar activities are allowed to be carried out here.
