“A dissapoinment.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Many of the poison-snakes cages were to small and overcrowding for the poor animals, and dirty. Especially one with black mambas who through themselves around in what I associated with a bit of panic.

“for some one with a fear of snakes, this was bearable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

liked that we could see the smaller snakes not in cages, so i could actually not be so fearful that they would harm us. but the bigger snakes were in the glass houses just slithering away and looking harmless until we saw how big they were! there were lots of varieties to look at and they all looked well fed, thank goodness! they were in so many colours and sizes and some had shed their skins which was a big gross at some point to look at! But it was a fascinating experience to be so close to such dangerous animals and actually have the guts to look at them! but 3 or so cages didn't have any snakes, they should make all of them available so people can see as much as they have paid for.

“Snake Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The Snake Park has a collection of different kinds of snakes. There are also some other repetiles that are maintained at the park and are displayed for the public. Each snake has a summary of information including how harmful or harmless and the most common areas to find them. They are quite a sight.

“Amazing creatures”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I am not really a fan of snake but all the same I liked the expereince. There were different kinds of snakes and each has a unique story about it that the guides tell you. They are well informed and ready to help. It is alos easily accessible.
