“Reptile world...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

The Guindy snake park, adjacent to the Guindy national park at sardar patel road in Chennai, houses hundreds of species of snakes, many crocodiles, a few species of turtles, monitors and Chameleon amongst others. This well-maintained 1-acre park is a must-visit for all the tourists and travelers to this region in general and Children in particular. The highlight of the snake park is the live snake demonstration that happens at 10.00 AM, 1PM, 3 PM and 4.30 PM everyday where a member of the Zoo brings out certain snake varieties like the Indian rat snake, green snake, bronzeback tree snake and Spectacled cobra to explain their features and activities to the visitors. The park is opened on all days except Tuesdays between 8.30 AM and 5.30 PM.

“Snake park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I was not too impressed with the snake park as much as I was with croc bank. Looked a bit badly maintained.

Yes, there were variety of snakes. The interpretation centre was good. But very noisy and you couldn't hear the commentary for the snake show.

Also the snake park had a separate charge and the children's park had a separate entry fee. Didn't quite understand the logic!

“Global Croc's Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

You can find all kind of crocs from all over the world. I was able to spot crocs from africa, australia, South america etc.

Ranging from small to huge sizes, you can see all size, color. In pair or alone or in a big group fighting, resting hiding, eating.

There is so much of crocs that some time you might get scared that are yo usafe here :)

It took me 3 hours to stop by each fence to have a pic and then move on, if i would have more time then i would have stayed for the whole day.

It also has a huge collection of snakes ranging from cobra to viper, krait to non-poisonus snakes and python. They will show you how they remove venom and a small snake show.

A great place to hang out for a day.

“Creating safer environment!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

One place which doesnt keeps snakes in captivity but just gets them to the park to get rid of their venom and then the snake charmers leave them back in the forests.
They had variety of snakes and were eager to tell us all about them. Luckily for us the cobra couple put up quite a performance :)
