Sanajeh (meaning "ancient gape" in Sanskrit) is a genus of Cretaceous madtsoiidsnake from western India. A recently described fossil from the Lameta Formation has been found coiled around an egg and an adjacent skeleton of a 50cm long sauropod dinosaur hatchling. This suggests that the snake preyed on hatchling sauropods at nesting sites similar to modern snakes.

It was found in sandstone formations near outcropping in the village of Dholi Dungri in Gujarat.

It was likely to have preyed upon the young of various sauropod species such as Jainosaurus and Isisaurus
