The mission will serve to depict the snake at very different stages of their life viz. hatchling, juvenile, semi adult and adult, also before molting, after moulting etc. These depictions will be important for anyone trying to identify a snake which sometimes looks different at these different stages.

Snakes are fascinating creatures. They are beautiful, they are elegant, they are cryptic and they have millions of years of evolutionary lessons to teach us. Lets learn it together. India and its southern region falls in tropical zone and boasts of huge biodiversity and that includes ample lot of snakes. But these majestic creatures faces the wrath of intolerance by humans who doesn't know much of co-existence. Many gets killed on sight which is really sad. Many have illogical myths associated with them, which sometimes prove beneficial but most of the time proves hazardous to the snake. With too much conservation status reserved by big mammals like Tiger, and now also Amphibians gaining new grounds in conservation fields, We also needs to shift our focus on these Reptiles as well.
