Owner description: In addition to over thirty Indian snakes, this specialty zoo is home to domestic and exotic crocodiles, turtles and tortoises. A library and museum are also on site.

This zoo was both enjoyable and educational and well worth the small fee. They have a wide range of reptiles (loads of crocodiles!) and lots of information on snakes and other reptiles from around the world. There is also a snake show in the main building every hour or so. I would recommend this for anyone interested in reptiles or conservation.

It's a nice place to go. Take your kids. Ask them to behave. Set the right example. Probably because these extremely dangerous snakes are in cages and display windows, people try and show their 'power' by banging on glass, etc. There's a sign that says people who annoy the snakes will be sent out. I think they should just feed those people to the constrictors!
Anyway, really nice.

Snake demo at the end of your walk at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 430pm.

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.

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!

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.
