Air-gliding snake rescued at Keri!

A fascinating snake – an Ornate flying snake- was rescued at Keri, Sattari near the Western Ghats. A local family spotted the snake on their fence. They were a bit frightened because they saw the snake gliding and wanted it to be rescued.

This snake is different as it can change its shape into a parachute by changing the positioning of its ribs. It flattens its body and glides through the air. The snake usually climbs up a tree and then glides. It’s not that venomous so it isn’t a threat to human beings.
