Initial survey report of ten days shows an positive result for the new project initiated by MWT Herpetologist Mr. Mavish and his research team. Almost all the houses of Dhanusha village of Nepal shows one or two snake bites in last two year. The common snakes, peoples encountered was Cobra and Krait (Poisonous), Rat snake, Wolf snake, Water snake, Striped Keelback, Vine snake, Pythons, etc. Villagers kills all these speechless creatures without any humanity, as thinking of poisonous ones. They are unaware of importance of these creature in our environment, even though they are the friends of farmer. In addition our herpetologist added that, every one of these area want us to rescue those creatures on time, delay of a minute or two because of traffic pretend villagers to wipe off these speechless ones from the earth. If this attitude of human being continues, it is sure that number of reptile species is giong to vanish from earth in no time. Here comes the importance of rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife team.
