This old Florida attraction is both a business and educational resource that's a must see for adults and kids alike. You'll see some of the most lethal animals on the planet who while fearsome are timid creatures who try to avoid humans at all costs. This business also provides the venom needed for anti/venom for the world and you'll see... More

We just happened to stop here while looking for things to do in St.Cloud. We got there around 3 when the venom demonstration was beginning. It was a cool thing that you don't get to see often. They collected venom from various poisonous snakes for use in research and anti-venom development. The owner informed the group of several kinds of... More

Amazing variety in a relatively small venue! Very educational visit and reasonable admission fee. The people who work there were very friendly and made us feel welcome.

Decided to take a different way home from Disney and chose to turn around and give it a try after passing it. Kids had fun, though a little early in the drive home for a break. Make sure you plan your visit when they have the snake demonstration. Today it was only at noon and 3, next time we'll call... More

Reptile World Serpentarium is AWESOME!! George, his wife and the staff there are great with the snakes and do a wonderful job of telling and showing people how they run their amazing operation to harvest snake venom. George has years of experience and it shows when you see the exciting venom show up close and personal. The snake exhibits are... More

To look at the Reptile World Serpentarium exterior you'd think, "oh another ho-hum snake farm" but nothing could be further from the truth. This Serpentarium, is loaded with fun, excitement, and and loads of useful information. I've never seen so many different types of snakes in one place, not to mention the turtle, the alligators, and the many varieties of... More

Moving to Florida, my husband felt that I needed to know about local snakes as I walk the dog daily and need to know about what is out there. I hate snakes, they make me scream! I went and was pleasantly surprised. The snakes are behind glass, but the most interesting thing was the extraction of the venom which is... More

Not much to say without ruining it. But this place is awesome. I loved seeing snakes I'd never see in real life, like the Huge King Cobra. Fun fact the doors to the snake pens wear only the staff have access have no locks so in theory a snake could push it open kinda scary. Make sure you pet the... More

We went to the Serpentarium having passed it on several visits to Florida on our way to the Beach. It was a great short trip, really fascinating to learn about the venom milking process and how anti venom is produced. George and his assistant Rosa 'milked' several snakes and we also had the unexpected treat of a wild local snake... More

The Serpentarium is a working venom farm with hundreds of snakes. Venom collection is viewed up close. Very close. The process is absolutely fascinating. The show is also very exciting, probably for the wrong reasons. Collecting venom from deadly snakes is dangerous. The venom is sent away for processing into anti-venom, saving dozens of lives every year. Afterward, there are... More
