The mother snake was killed by locals

Using artificial incubation, wildlife activists have hatched 27 baby cobras at the Sylhet Agricultural University (SAU).

The eggs were hatched on Tuesday under the supervision of the Authority for Animal Rights and Biodiversity Conservation “Pradhikar” at SAU.

The eggs were recovered on Thursday by Professor Dr Sultan Ahmed of SAU Microbiology and Immunology Department and handed over to the organization. 

Dr Sultan mentioned the mother was a monoclaved cobra, known in Bangla as the “gokhra snake”,  which is one of the most venomous snakes in the Indian subcontinent.

He oversaw the whole process.

Pradhikar President Tajul Islam was excited to be able to hatch the 27 eggs, which he said was very challenging. ”The babies will be released in Srimangal's Lauyachhara National Park soon," he added.

Locals recently found the seven-foot-long mother Gokhra in the kitchen of a house in Shahparan, and killed it. Later, the eggs were rescued through excavation.
