Snakes are among the most successful creatures adapted to ecologically diverse habitats predominantly in warm tropical areas of the world. Ecologically they play a pivotal role in ecosystem functioning and are part and parcel of a number of food webs due to their predatory nature. The present paper reports 12 species of snakes belonging to twelve genera and six families of order Squamata from Dumna Nature Park, Jabalpur.
