The snakes are kept in dark boxes without light. The cobras were brought out and poked with a stick to make them angry and hiss. Two cobras were forced to get angry with each other to start a fight. And the cost? 3,000 rupees! What a total rip off. Do not go here and do not encourage this bad treatment of animals.

The owner of farm was very nice and friendly. He carefully took his pets and show us them, told about their habits, how does they live in wild nature and so on. He explained why people hurt them and he gave us to touch snakes. By the way, he has no fixed price. You can give as much as you want.

The owner of the snake farm showed us a number of poisonous and non-poisonous snakes, introduced us to their life in nature. He also told us stories from his experience with snakes. Very interesting tour.

Me and my wife went yesterday to this 'zoo' ... it's not a farm... the snakes only got very very small cages and the owner picks them out of the cages several times a day for tourists... you should not support this kind of tourism!

I went there by local bus. I was alone, the guy charged me 3000 rp for 20 min tour. He bears the snakes in small dirty holes.... it's not very friendly to the snakes. Do not go there and support this kind of zoo!!
