Kerala, June 27 (ANI): A snake lover from Kannur district in India's southern province of Kerala hatched five python eggs successfully. For Rajneesh, 26, petting snakes is his passion. He claims he was just an eight-year-old when he caught the first snake, thinking it to be a fish. Ever since he has been catching snakes as the fear-factor began to fade. He claims to have caught over 4000 snakes so far. Rajneesh says he never gives a second thought when he has to take snake eggs back home and hatch and nurture them. The snake lover said he recently got a call regarding a python being spotted in a nearby house and rushed to the spot to catch it but couldn't. Instead, he was able to return home with seven eggs of that python, of which he successfully hatched five, which he claims are healthy and doing fine. Rajneesh is now a part of the rapid rescue team of the forest department and earns his living with the job apart from the small amount he gets from villagers by catching snakes. Rajneesh has managed to retain some of the snakes in his small house ranging from dangerous ones like king cobra, wiper and few other species as his loving pets.
