Mysuru: Two rare species of snakes- Travancore wolf snakes were rescued from the water sump of a hotel in the city.

The snakes were found at The Atrium Boutique Hotel in Bannimantap, when an employee of the hotel went to check water level in the sump in the garden area.

Snake rescuer Suryakeerthi who went there on receiving the call said ” these species of snakes are mainly found in Kodagu and surroundings of the Western Ghat. This is the mating period of the snakes and it gives rise to doubt that there may be many more snakes of similar species here”.

Suryakeerthi said ” I was also surprised to find the species of snakes here. One had shed its outer skin after molting, while another was in the process. However, they are non- venomous”.
