Up to 10 snakes less than a month old are located in patios and houses in the Laguna Real subdivision, specimens delivered to Animal Protection, commented the president of the Neighbors committee, Araceli Pérez Sambrano.
“In fact, at the moment there are 10 snakes in less than a month, you see, there are children, there are bigger ones, pure mazacuata, we have not found a coral snake, or anything else, there are neighbors . who came home and they all went to the fence.”
Being surrounded by swamps, the fauna came out of its environment around the Olmeca lagoon, thus, ask the inhabitants of the subdivision and neighboring colonies not to kill the species they find.
“Then they came out and we told them, well, don’t kill them, let us know so we can go and put them in a terrarium that we have there, the next day we talked to Animal Protection and they. Come and take them to move them in quotes because we can move them right here”.
When speaking to the Laguna Real subdivision, he stated that people should be taught to take care of animals, but they should also understand that the area is a protected area.
Pérez Sambrano asked the residents that even if people are afraid, do not kill or hurt them, because the species can be found in their natural habitat, because the wetlands were already there when the houses were built .
Pérez Sambrano explained that the snakes they found were not able to return to the wetland because the grass had grown.
Among the species present in the Laguna Real area, there are everything from snakes, birds, to crocodiles.
“The alligator, the lizard, there’s the otter, there’s the shad, the mojarras, the turtles, the eagles, there’s the peregrine falcon, the eagle, the eagle, there’s raccoons, the opossums, the snakes both mazacuata and deaf”.
He emphasized that they recommend that the neighbors do not harm the species if they find it in their yards or houses, if this is the case, they should inform the Laguna Real Neighborhood Committee, because they have guards who know how to treat animals when Protection arrives. animal
