Rescued pneumonic python recovers, but still kept in quarantine as precautionary measure

The decision was taken as this is a serious disease in snakes and may cause death if not treated timely. It is also contagious, so the infected reptiles have to be isolated from others.
The 14-year-old male python has recovered but since pneumonia is highly contagious in reptiles, he will be kept at the Rohtak Zoo for another month before he is released in the wild.
