New Delhi,In the premises of Rohini Jail, a 3.5-feet-long snake was spotted and was later released in its natural habitat.
Some inmates while working at an open space inside the jail last week noticed a snake. They immediately alerted the guards. The security officials of the jail then informed the NGO which rescued the snake.
Geeta Seshamani, co-founder of Wildlife SOS said, "Checkered keelbacks can be quite aggressive when threatened and often inflate their fore-body as an act of self-defence. Although non-venomous, its bite can be injurious" .
The non-venomous snake caught by the rescuers of NGO Wildlife SOS was identified as 'checkered keelback'.
