Not a big place, but certainly worth a visit if you can see the venom milking demonstration. The way they handle the very poisonous snakes is very cool.

The first thing to say is that the snakes are very well looked after and are part of the Red Cross antivenom program. The people handling the snakes are Red Cross employees. The show at 14.30 is the highlight....seeing the king cobra in all it's...More

Hey there! I wish I could remember how much exactly it was, but it was no more than $5 USD. I just remember it was crazy cheap, and my daughter who was 3 at the time got in free.
