We learnt about the place at our hotel in Matara. The farm is a bit in the interior areas and takes around 45mins to reach.We were expecting a big commercial farm with huge snake enclosures and etc. But instead, this place is very small with only a small signboard declaring its presence.
The guy who runs this place is more of a snake bite doctor who treats people with anti-venoms as this area has a lot of poisonous snakes. He has around 20-25 snakes (king cobras, krait, boa,pythons etc) kept in a room the size of car garage. Most of these snakes are highly venomous.There are few tarantulas in his collection as well.
The best part is this guy will let you come really close to all these snakes. It's sad that he keeps all these reptiles in pretty small boxes but still he has taken decent care of them.
If you like snakes or otherwise are not terrified by them, this would be a worthwhile visit.
