I visited the Guindy snake park with my family. I was having very high expectations but was largely disappointed after my visit. PROS: The park has convenient location.

I recently visited snake park at guindy.The entrance fee is nominal.We have variety of snakes inside the glass.Apart from snakes we can find crocodiles,turtles etc.If we go on feeding time we can see the live demo of a person handling the snake.The park closes by 5.30.So visit it before the park closes.

My nephew wanted to see the world famous snake park in Guindy and I had to take him along. It was a pleasant surprise for me too though as I got to see one of the largest collection of deadly and non venomous snakes all in one place. The sheer variety of snakes would make a man go 'Wow'.

Small place to see various species of snakes. At the main area a person would give you lessons on various snakes holding them which is quite inforrmative Along with that you would also get to view a few different varieties of turtles and crocodiles Ideal time to spent here would be not more than 30 minutes
