Sharanya Bhat, a resident of Ashoknagar and a final-year BSc student at St. Aloysius College, has an intense interest in snakes, frogs, and other reptiles. Whenever she learns about snake sightings in the city, she goes to the location, saves the snake, and releases it back into the wild. She has so far tamed a variety of snakes, such as the common krait, python, rat snake, serpents, and others.

What are your plans for the future?
I want to pursue a master’s degree in wildlife, and my ambition is to join the forest service and contribute to the conservation of nature, animals, and birds, which is a cause close to me.

Who trained you?
Snake Joy, Ujire, taught me how to catch deadly snakes, and Atul Pai, a snake expert from Ashoknagar, has been supportive of my endeavors.

How did you develop love towards reptiles/animals?
I used to go to my grandparents’ house in Kokkada whenever I had the chance, and I’ve been fascinated by frogs and snakes since I was a child, roaming around hills, fields, and other places. My grandfather, Prakash Balthillaya, would caution me about harming or killing animals, and this advice ingrained in me a strong passion for animals, reptiles, and birds.
