Horrible facility.. Dirty and smelled. I would recommend to stay clear from this place. Creepy staffs, rather spent your time else where. This place should be shut down completely.

We visited the snake farm today, arriving 20 minutes after the 11:00am venom extraction show. We had a good look around the displays outside and inside. It takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to see everything, including the information videos on the 1st floor....More

Definitely worth the trip. About $7. Find out when the snake demonstration is, as the times seem to vary. Plan your trip around that timeframe. There are some exhibits to look at but seeing the snakes out was the best part. The cobras were amazing...More

I am always reluctant to go to shows with animals as I feel they may be cruel. As this was connected to the Red Cross hospital I visited for the 11am weekend showing of the snakes. The guide was very professional and spoke excellent English...More

My goodness, it can leave you cold blooded. A good display of the most venomous snakes, and what the man can do with them. Most ladies would not feel comfortable .

A really nice place to visit for a couple of hours in an afternoon - if one likes snakes! It's a Red Cross Centre which houses snakes for venom extraction and educational purposes. It's for a good cause.

You must go to the show in the afternoon if you want to hold a snake and get a photo with it. The website has the times listed.

You can hold only the albinos python. all the other snakes are quite dangerous, so you won't be allowed, but you can take pictures of all the snakes.
