Context

A group of scientists, doctors and photographers in Kerala have launched a mobile app named “Snakepedia”.

Details

  • The app will present all relevant information on snakes, to help the public as well as doctors in treating snake bites.
  • The app aims to help the public identify snakes, bust myths about snakes, and avail proper treatment on time for snakebites and protect snakes as well as snakebite victims.
  • The developers have identified 3,600 species of snakes worldwide. India hosts about 300 distinct species of this lot.
