Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
A Rare species of Monitor Lizard have also caught on Monday midnight near to the fire station in Kharghar.
Common Krait, not so common but dangerous, most poisonous snake in Asia has caught in Kharghar, near to Kendriya Vihar, sector-12. It is for the first time Common Krait has caught from Kharghar or nearby areas.
On Sunday midnight Shailesh Khotkar, an animal activist from Kharghar who rescues animalsvoluntarily and runs a charitable trust for animals called Jessy Pet Zone, got a call from Kendriya Vihar in sector-12 to catch a viper. As soon as he reached the spot, the viper had gone, but he got more dangerous and rare species of snake in Asia. Unlike other snakes, Common Krait’s bite will not show any symptoms or even pain for a few hours this can provide a false impression to the victim, which makes the snake more dangerous. It is 17 times more poisonous than Cobra.
On Friday Vishnu Pandit, 13, has got the bite of a cobra and died in Belapur CBD while playing. Poisonous snakes like Viper, Cobra are increasingly caught in many parts of Navi Mumbai. Shailesh observed that, “90% of snakes found in Kharghar are poisonous and caused many problems for residents, as it claimed many lives in the area.”
Natural habitats of these snakes and other animals are destroyed due to developments in the city, which forced snakes to find new places to live. Shailesh said that, Mountains near to the area was a common habitat for these animals, but are destroyed for residential purposes. So snakes started migrating through a river that flow through Sec-12 of Kharghar.
This river has also been polluted by solid wastes thrown by residents. This made snakes and Monitor Lizards to find a better place to hide. Bushes and low scrub jungle areas in Khargar and Kendriya Vihar served a better place for them. Many trees of the are cut down for construction and residential purposes and adversely affected the habitats of Snakes. Works on Metro Rail Projects has also disturbed the habitats of snakes. Those construction works make huge vibrations in the nearby area and affected the life of animals. As a result, many snakes and animals came outside to the residential areas and caught from many places of Kharghar.
As Anti Snake Venom and first aid services are not available in Navi Mumbai, people found it hard to get immediate treatments for snake bites. For a long time Social organizations for animals was asserting the importance of bringing better treatments for snake bite in the city.
The snake will be later send to the Haffkine Institute for training research and testing, in Parel.
