Struggle for life

Chameleon was struggling hard for its life. It fell in the septic tank and was trying to come out but slipped back because of the slippery surface of flush. It was trying again and again. It took rest to regain its energy. It attempted once more. All was in vain.

I was watching it, how it could be saved? Have I to put my hands in filthy water of septic tank?

  1. use a spoon...
    or a net or something sieve..
    or a cup...
    depending on size of the chameleon ..

    I was too young to remember. As a baby I had a bout of food poisoning and was admitted. The doc put me on glucose. Since I was too little my grand dad held me in his arms..

    I was shitting all over his dhothi but he held on until the course was over

  9. Chandrika,

    You could use a stick. I have done it few times to rescue something or the other. Only thing is that you have to be fast as they tend to cling to stick but as soon out of danger they clamber up.

    Take care
