If you see a snake please dont try to catch it or chase it away

Just watch where it goes and give us a ring

A snake hiding in one place is easy for us to remove

But a scared snake somewhere in a huge clump of bamboo is virtually impossible to find

Bali Reptile Rescue is a small but dedicated group of volunteers who specialise in three main things with reptiles

Education Rescue Relocation

For far too long reptiles in Indonesia have been seen as only good for either food or fashion articles like shoes and handbags

It is only recently that conservation and environmental awareness has forced people to begin to understand the huge role reptiles play in Indonesian ecology

Indonesia has been blessed with some of the worlds most magnificent animals and our group wants to help preserve as many of these as we can before they disappear forever

With Bali becoming more populated every year because it is such a wonderful place to live; more and more forest and farming land is becoming cleared for housing
This removes habitats and brings more people into contact with displaced reptiles such as snakes lizards and fresh water turtles

Contact usually results in the death of the reptiles through human fear of the unknown
That is why Education about reptiles is so important and our priority here is educating the children to show them how interesting and wonderful their native animals are
Relocation lets us come to your home or workplace and safely remove any reptiles that are causing you concern
Rescue is where we treat and rehabilitate injured reptiles

Donations can be very easily made using Paypal which costs you nothing to send money
Anything at all is very gratefully accepted

Some Rescues

First up is a lovely little Cobra we nicknamed Cobber
You may notice a very misshaped hood on this one
It had an argument with a terrier and the terrier removed a substantial chunk of flesh
I sewed it up and this was the result 6 weeks later
It was shedding and feeding well so was released deep into a National Park here

This is what is called an Elaphe Radiata or Radiated rat snake [ular tikus]
Non venomous and this one is showing how they all act when asked to go into into bag for relocation
The colour of this is pretty unusual as they are normally a vibrant green in Bali

Also released in the same park

This is a small reticulated python that had major skin loss on top of the head Ive put a couple of pics so you can see the healing power most reptiles have It was treated with a combination of honey and savlon and was given powerade baths to help hydrate Although it made a complete recovery it became very docile and too used to people so was given to a home where it will be well looked after                                                                  

The next photo clearly shows a mouth infection on the same python
which is fairly common in wild retics from this area

Breakfast time and nearly healed

We can only do our best and too often our best isnt good enough
Reptiles that have been hit by cars often slither away seemingly unhurt
But a huge number of those will die later from head or internal injuries

This is a stunning example of a normal coloured burmese being relocated. 




The pattern was exquisite

Next one was very pleasing

This was a burmese pretty badly burnt in a fire

Lots of weeping areas and blistering

After about 4 months and very little handling it was released as feisty as ever

So there are few of things we try to do

Most probably caused by humans of course, 2 different retics with nearly identical facial injuries
