For a smaller place this is surprising diverse. This was featured on the TV show Dirty Jobs which was really cool. A friend of ours teenage daughter had her birthday party at The Snake Farm which surprised us but it turned out to be really fun. Keep that in mind if you need an unusual place for a party.

The amount of animals they have is pretty decent, and they do a different show every 30 minutes all day. My kids enjoyed the petting zoo and getting to see the fattest little pigs they've ever seen. We enjoyed watching all the animals, especially the white lions as they rough housed with each other and then lounged around for pictures.... More

I will say, I don't really like seeing animals in small cages and this is what this place mostly is. If I could give this place a 3.5, I would but I'm giving them the benefit of the higher rating. I moved to Austin in 94 from South Texas and have been passing this place all this time thinking it... More

After quite some time we visited this place again, and we were very impressed with the many improvements that have been made. Snakes are just a part of it. They now also have many other animals. It is worth a visit.

The 6 or 7 foot deep rattlesnake "pit" is kick butt. It must be 7 or 8 feet in diameter and covered with a locked iron cage to keep the toddlers out. Ask the clerk if you can say Hi to Ramona

We had a great time. We love the fact we get to get so close to the animals. Feeding the animals was a blast.

I didn't quite know what to expect as I have driven past this place for many, many years but never stopped--always thought it looked like a dive. But curiosity got the best of me, and we went. I really enjoyed it and was impressed by the number of animals on exhibit! I had no idea there were SO many different... More

The giant signs always made me want to stop on our long-drive to see family. Finally we did - it was about as expected. The hyena stalked our toddler son, wanting to eat him. That was great.

What an eye opener....snakes from the world over and we'll displayed . Outside displays just as great with expanding habitat. Lions, hyenas, wolves , monkeys and capaberas . They have a collection of the ten deadliest snakes in the world ,including Cobras,russelsvipers,and taipans.

Has lots of cool animals as well as snakes. Although the animals seem to be healthy some of the place needs a little work.
