Two members of LNC were went to attend a snake rescue call in Jamnagar on 2nd Feb, 2012.

There they show a snake with abnormal colors. later it was identified that, it was a Checkered Keelback snake, which is very common in Jamnagar. But its color was light yellow, which is not normal. We checked it properly. Its eyes were red(which is also abnormal for Checkered Keelback). So our members concluded that It was an Albino Checkered Keelback. Next day we checked on internet for some couple of hours for Albino Checkered Keelback. We found only 2-3 websites showing about that snake.

Albino type animals have complete or partial absence of pigments in skin. So they dont have their original colors.

Now this snake will be released in Forest by Lakhota Nature Club with help of Forest Department.
