Reptiles, generally snakes look for cool and hidden places as summer hits. That is why, you are more likely to hear cases like snake trespassing in civil areas, a snake found in the house, garden, parking lobby etc more in this season.
As we all know that due to lockdown the cases of wildlife entering into human society have increased, so as the danger.
This year, people are frequently spotting them near their houses, mainly because they are at home. Besides, the environment around them is calm and so reptiles come out frequently.
Though we cannot assertively say more reptiles are being in human habitats now, the lockdown has provided them with the freedom of movement.
This means the human-reptiles encounter rate has increased.
What to do if you encounter any reptiles in lockdown?
- If you encounter any reptile or other wild animal, first of all, try to stay calm and not to panic!
- Keep yourself and others at a safe distance, maybe outside the room or house or lobby. Keep social distancing in mind.
- Call an animal rescue team immediately
- Meanwhile, keep an eye on the movement of the animal so that rescuer can immediately take action without wasting time in search of the reptile.
