Chernobyl showed photos of rare snakes

On the Facebook page of the Chernobyl radiation-ecological biosphere reserve, which previously showed a picture of a strange creature, there was a photograph a rare snake species of Renard (steppe Viper). As told the experts of the reserve, previously the East steppe Viper used to get poison, but due to the sharp downsizing of the fishery has been discontinued.

These reptiles can be found only in a small area. In all European countries Renard is under the protection of the Berne Convention, if it is endangered. Despite the toxicity, to humans the snake is not dangerous.

Steppe Viper is a species of venomous snake of the genus of snakes of the Viper family, found in Europe and Asia, including in Ukraine.

Earlier, the workers of the Chernobyl radiation-ecological biosphere reserve showed the huge mushroom of the boletus.

As reported “Today”, July 10 a new sarcophagus for Chernobyl was put into operation and transferred to the government of Ukraine. The international community has raised 1.5 billion euros for the project. The confinement will last at least 100 years. The event was attended by the President of Ukraine.
