On World Snake Day meet Basheer; ‘Saviour of snakes’

Kalpetta: On World Snake Day, ‘Mathrubhumi News’ meets Ahammed Basheer, whose knowledge rivals that of any herpetologist. Known as the saviour of snakes, he is forever available to trap one, which otherwise will be killed. What started out as a passion two decades back, has now made him a snake catcher with the wildlife department, and is fondly called ‘Pambu’ {snake} Basheer’. He has caught and freed around 6,000 venomous and non-venomous snakes, losing an index finger in the bargain to a cobra-bite. According to him, different species like king cobra, cobra and python venture forth out of their pits as per weather patterns dictated by climatic changes.
