Unlike zoos and crocodile bank, this small little snake park is located in Guindy and offers children a glimpse into world of reptiles and wildlife. Lots of trees are there offering shade and fresh air to inhale. Needs more maintenance to attract tourists.

Several varieties of snakes can be seen here. You can see all dangerous snakes like Sand Boa, Pythons, King Cobra, Viper, Kraits, Rat snakes etc. You can also see demonstration of catching snake and removal of their venom. Apart from snakes, some crocodiles can also be seen here.

Must see place - lot of information about Snakes in there. There are lot of different varieties of snakes. A few other reptiles are also there. There are videos played inside the museum and they are very informative. Just next to Guindy National Park - visit both together!

Not much to see. No Snake show like before. Houses few snakes and few crocs. Do not plan specifically for this place, unless if ur looking for places to see with in the city. Theres a children park adjacent to it. Few deers and fox put in there.

Snake park located near Guindy offers a big breathing space with lots of trees and bushes and good collection of snakes and reptiles. Frequented by school children, better to avoid summer days. There is entrance fee.
