Rabha

Bamboo

Junthi, a trap used for capturing rabbit is made of finely skinned bamboo straws delicately tied with plastic ropes. The bamboo straws are tied together in U-Shape. Nylon threads are delicately wrapped around the surface of the trap. At the both ends of the bamboo straws, the threads are used to tie together in a knot. A cluster of thin bamboo strips are tied together at the middle of the trap. Multiple traps of the same shape are prepared, tied together and placed in the field. These traps are normally used around the vege-cultural farms.
