This was when India was being ruled by british. British implemented this policy and later was removed once the british understood the consequences. But the above video cant be pre independent video.

Edit - Britishers -> British

Curious, is “Britishers” a regular term used to refer to the British? The other day my Indian coworker also mentioned Britishers and I thought I misheard the word. Never heard it before.

u/Ceeeriuz Jan 27 '23

This is nothing to do with this video. This person is a snake relocator, catching snakes in urban areas that are deemed ‘nuisance’. He probably just saved up a bunch to release at once. It’s really bad practice to release so many in one place as the local environment will not have the prey resources to keep them alive.

u/Jwinnington50 Jan 26 '23

Hate to be that guy but this one always gets me. Poisonous refers to toxins that are ingested. Venomous refers to organisms that produce venom and inject it often via bite or sting. So snakes that produce venom are venomous not poisonous

22

u/thiosk Jan 26 '23

Not necessarily true. If the snake ingests a poison-type pokemon then it rolls a saving throw to determine whether it absorbs the poisonous trait

7

u/Jwinnington50 Jan 26 '23

Haha yeah that is true I should’ve qualified my statement with the vast of majority of snakes. The garter snake is not venomous, but is poisonous if it is eaten from all of the toxins it absorbs from its prey (newts and salamanders).

u/petitcochonATL Jan 26 '23

Oh this is my new favorite piece of trivia, thank you!! I’m always very careful about the distinction between venomous and poisonous, but I never knew there were poisonous snakes 🐍

u/Coc0tte Jan 26 '23

In some places snakes are endangered so there are captive breeding programs to help boost the species' numbers and the snakes are released into the wild in big numbers because there is often quite a lot of mortality with reptiles. They are also often released in areas with rodent issues to help farmers as well.

5

u/FreakyGangBanga Jan 27 '23

I agree with most of what you have said. However nothing warrants an act of releasing so many snakes in one spot. Rat infestations have to be in plague numbers for that and those scenarios are rare.

u/Banana_Havok Feb 09 '23

Probably not the case here, but in Vietnam animals are caught in the wild then sold to people who buy them for purposes of “freeing” them into the wild, thus earning good karma. Those same animals are then caught again and resold to the same people who then “free” them again.

There were a few individual close up shots that had some snakes like some Burmese and boa constrictors, but none of the snakes in the movie are even from Egypt and are mostly constrictor snakes not venomous asp, as the movie claimed they were. Still pretty cool tho
