Jim Corbett National Park ( Uttarakhand, India ) is ranked among the world’s best sanctuaries. It is very fortunate in terms of natural resources. In this park, everything is available that the wildlife likes, as dense forest, river, lake, mountain, waterfall, etc.
But this time Corbett Park is under discussion due to King Cobra.
Various species of snakes are found in Jim Corbett Park. These snakes include dangerous snakes such as the Green Cobra, Russell Viper, and King Cobra.
Snakes usually start to appear from the last week of February. They remain visible almost up to the month of August. During this period they search for prey. They go to safe shelters after getting their food.
SO far, about 75% of snakes have come out, but the Cobra is not yet been seen in Jim Corbett Park.
The King Cobra is a very dangerous and poisonous snake. Its species is under threat, so it is placed in the category of protected species. The absence of King has drawn the attention of the experts.
The following reasons are being believed for the absence of King Cobra in the park by this time:
Use of sanitizers:
To tackle with coronavirus, the sanitizers are being used continuously.
Probably due to this, the King is feeling trouble coming out.

Lack of food:
King cobras usually like small snakes, rats, and frogs, etc., in food. In search of them, they come out in this season, and after hunting, they go back to safe hide-outs.
In search of food, they often reach into the populated area adjacent to the forest. Probably he is not getting enough food, so he is not visible anywhere in the Corbett region.
Change in environment:
Changes in the environment may also be the reason for the change in King’s behavior.
Since King Cobra is kept under the protected species the non-appearance of him is a matter of concern for experts. Preparations are underway to study this.
