I'm new to IA and was just going through a few posts dating back a few years or so and found that quite a few of you have an active interest in snakes. Thats really nice to see. :)
Apart from angling I am also an active snake wrangler. My passion for these creatures grew after I interned with a wild life rescue organization in Goa where I worked with snakes and crocodiles. Right now I am in charge of handling all snake rescues on my campus which is located in the moderately forested hills of Lavale, on the outskirts of Pune.
I have so far rescued 3 of the big 4 here apart from many non venomous ones and I am loving every moment of it. Yet to come face to face with a Krait.
I'm just happy to find people who have the same interests like me, since some people think I'm weird cos while everyone else is running away from snakes, I run towards them. The chicks though do think I'm cool (but thats just a perk)
Anyways, its nice to share more than our angling stories now and then.
Here's a look at few of the snakes I've rescued: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=186082&id=706378245&l=95db0bdb33
