Kids that love reptiles will love this place. Absolute fun with snakes and if you make it on at the right time you will get to see a demo of venom extraction of the snakes as well.

A great collection of reptilians particularly snakes from across the world. Draws a lot of admiration particularly from children. Located in Guindy and hence well connected.

I have visited the park. The park is full of flora and fauna. A vareity of deer, snakes , birds and crocodiles are there. So many trees plants and flowers are there too. The upkeeping of park was good. One can visit the park to feel silence and nature in the noise of chennai.
