Snake Park

Research

Equipped with many scientists and practicing herpetologists on board serving in various capacities (both honorary and employed), the Snake Park is an ideal herpetological research organization in the city. The Dy. Director is also the chief full time Scientist in the Park who takes care of research activities. Herpetological researches including field surveys and lab work covering diverse aspects such as systematics, taxonomy, ecology, ethology, biogeography and conservation are being carried out. We network with other academic institutions to carry out collaborative researches. We entertain internship programmes from college students pursuing life sciences (preferably Zoology major). Co-mentoring of academic projects from the college depts. are also undertaken.

We welcome scholars and college students to approach us and make use of our resources.
