From the upcoming Spacey" EP with Young Cass this is "Outta Here" Ft. Ceda C

While making Valentine cards with my little one this evening I was reminded of the importance of small gestures of kindness.  Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be about romantic love.  It can be about seeking connection even in small ways and making peace in our relationships.

Indian Rat snake (Ptyas mucosa)
Type: Non-Venomous.
Place: Kalmane, Thirthahalli, Shimoga, KA.
Date: 11/02/2019. 
Used canes must be properly crushed and thrown only in the dustbin not outside in nature.
It a humble request to everyone to become responsible citizen and sensible about our environment/mother earth. 
Story: The rat snake snout got stucked into a beer cane which was thrown beside a brig. Locals of Kalmane village found the snake wriggling in an open sunlight, so somehow they kept the snake in shade and informed us for help. We cut the bottom of the cane and used restraining tube to keep the rat snake head safe from the cutter. As soon as the snake was removed from the cane then it was released under the brig.

Spectacled cobra (Naja naja)
Type: Venomous.
Place: Kammardi, Thirthahalli, Shimoga, KA.
Date: 08/02/2019. 
30+60+90= Haavu.
People who know Kannada language can understand the equation.
Story: The snake was found in a shelf of a liquor shop. Owner called us and assured that he will keep an eye on the snake from safe distance. We reached to the location and got to know that one of a customer is eagerly waiting for us to remove the snake so he can buy drink for him.
Eventually, the snake was gently bagged and released into the wild.

Saltwater crocodile // Crocodylus Porosus

Jaws lll 
Meet Jaws, the 17 ft saltie! He's the largest crocodile in captivity in India! He's one of my favourites. Being fed only once a week on Sundays, this meant he would only surface from the water once a week. Sometimes not even coming out of the water. He would almost always be under water or his snout sticking out slightly. Jaws loved the rain and would be out or at the surface then.  I got to see him out a couple of times as that was when the two cyclones passed through that side. I had never seen Jaws before as every time we went it was a weekday and super early in the morning. I was so excited to see him at the first feeding session. Every morning I would go and see if I could see him or if by chance just below the surface and I would wait for the Sunday feeding session to see him.

The #gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), also known as the #gavial, and fish-eating crocodile is a crocodilian in the family Gavialidae, and is native to the northern part of the Indian subcontinent. The global wild gharial population is estimated at fewer than 235 individuals, which are threatened by loss of riverine habitat, depletion of fish resources, and entanglement in fishing nets.

Indian Rat Snake (Ptyas mucosa)
Type: Non-Venomous.
Place: Kammardi, Thirthahalli, Shimoga, KA.
Date: 29/01/2019. 
Mating pair of rat snake.
Story: Owner of the house found a snake in the firewood shed which was attached to the house. The shed didn’t have enough light to identify the snake. First appearance local thought it’s a spectacled cobra but it was much bigger, then they realised that there were two snakes, might be King cobra?? We were informed about the situation. After close look we found a pair of rat snake mating beneath firewood. After discussion with locals, the decision has been made to not disturbed those snakes and let them move away by their own after mating period.

Gharial // Gavialis Gangeticus 
Male gharials have a pot like structure on their snouts called gharas. These crocodilians are the only ones you can distinguish between a male and a female by looking at them. Both these pictures are of males. The first male is Garfield who's in the underwater enclosure in croc bank. The second one is of Robin, who got into a fight with another male and lost the tip of his snout. This is normal in gharial males where due to fights they lose their gharas and snouts.

Ecotherapy, or nature therapy, is highly influenced by mindfulness techniques. Did you know that mindfulness is also a key component to a methodology known as Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MCBT), which is an incredibly effective form of treatment for depression and depression relapse prevention! .
.
.
Research by the UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence, or NICE (great mnemonic 😏), suggests that individuals with recurrent depressive episodes who undergo MCBT are less likely to experience future depressive episodes!

King cobra (Ophiophagus hannah)
Place: Kadturu, Kammardi, Thirthahalli, Shimoga, KA.
Date: 25/01/2019.
King cobra documentary is being screened on TV but no signal, check out the dish antenna properly :)
Malnad people shows tolerance toward wildlife whenever there is a close encounter.
Story: A King cobra was found trying to cross a main road to go into a forest patch. Locals decided to let the snake move away by its own without any disturbance. However, the snake got disturbed by frequent vehicles which caused the snake to take refuge under the roof tiles of a house in colony area. Appropriate instructions had been given to owner and spectators by ARRS team. Eventually the King cobra was gently removed from the roof and released just away from those houses.

Rat snake // Ptyas mucosa 
Going for a snake walk early morning, we got to see a couple of snakes in their natural habitat. This rat snake was actually in hiding as it's about to shed its skin. If you look closely at the top of the picture you can see the skin coming off, as well as the foggy covered eyes. Rat snakes are one of the most commonly seen snakes in India. Often growing up to 8ft. 🐍

Nile crocodile // Crocodylus niloticus

Cleopatra's favourite. 🐊 
Nile crocs live in rivers and quite close to human settlements. This leads to a lot of attacks. Since it doesn't really have a particular diet, someone nearby might look like a tasty meal for them. This is one of the few crocs that attack humans for purposes other than self-defence.

King cobra (Ophiophagus hannah)
Place: Nanturu, Thirthahalli, Shimoga, KA.
Date: 21/01/2019.
Food chain: Rat, Rat snake and, King cobra.
Story: A King cobra was found in a 35ft deep and 20ft wide open well-within an Areca plantation. When we reached the spot, we found a rotten rat and a rat snake along with the King cobra. The King cobra was alive but appeared exhausted. A cane basket was lowered into the well and the King cobra climbed into it. It was released nearby, away from houses in the presence of a forest department official. Later, a close look at the rat snake revealed a bite wound on its dorsum. We suspect that the rat snake got bitten by the King cobra, escaped and fell into the well, pursued by the King cobra. The rat snake probably regurgitated the rat and died. The King cobra, however did not eat the Rat snake for reasons unknown to us. The farm owner went to turn on the motor and accidentally saw the snake swimming. He told us that they do not inspect the well regularly and the snake may have fallen into the well a few days ago. 
Note: There is an urgent need to sensitize locals about the dangers of open-wells. Anything from a rat to an elephant can fall into it, and if unnoticed, could die a lingering death. Open-wells should at least be covered, fenced or, a boundary wall built around it and regularly inspected.

Dwarf caiman // Paleosuchus palpebrosus

The tiniest crocodilians. These guys would stick their head out of the water like this almost all the time. They camouflaged so well in their little murky ponds. They have a bony armour on both their upper and lower parts of the body which makes up for their tiny size.

Juvenile Marsh crocodile // Crocodylus Palustris 
In croc bank, there are a couple of Marsh crocodile pens. When I was there in one of their oldest pens with a natural water body if you looked really carefully you might have been lucky enough to see these babies basking in the sun. They are camouflaged so well that it took me a really long time to spot them.

Red-crowned roofed turtle // Batagur Kachuga 
The female turtle squirting water from her nose. My project was on the basking pattern of these turtles so I was at this pen a lot. I actually saw her doing this once after eating something after that I tried to get a picture of it. I finally got one a bit blurry but still one of my favourite pictures I took.

Hard truth. I will never be able to banish the anxiety I deal with completely. Read that again. It was a VERY tough pill to swallow at first. I didn’t WANT to live with this monster, I wanted it GONE!

But just like maintaining your physical health, I repeat, THERE IS NO QUICK FIX. I really had to deal with the fact that I had been implementing avoidance strategies instead of decreasing them and had to keep myself open to the things I was skeptical to... Such as MCBT. Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. It’s a thang peeps! Usually used to treat patients with severe depression, it has also shown to help patients with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (me 😂). It’s a modified form of cognitive therapy that incorporates mindfulness practices such as awareness, meditation and breathing exercises. Let me stress something (no pun intended lol) these methods look and feel different for everyone. DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. For me, this is changing my mindset and my outlook on my life and my relationship with the anxiety I deal with, because I will never be able to banish it completely, I can be DAMN sure that I’ll be equipped to handle it better 💪

Hard truth. I will never be able to banish the anxiety I deal with completely. Read that again. It was a VERY tough pill to swallow at first. I didn’t WANT to live with this monster, I wanted it GONE! But just like maintaining your physical health, I repeat, THERE IS NO QUICK FIX. I really had to deal with the fact that I had been implementing avoidance strategies instead of decreasing them and had to keep myself open to the things I was skeptical to... Such as MCBT.
