I am fascinated by snakes but they are one of only a couple of phobias I have.
This facility is small, but well worth the visit.
It is well laid out and the staff are friendly and very informative.
My wife has no real far of snakes - but knows I do.
So when the olive python was being held by a young girl, my wife challenged me!!! It wasn't too bad until the snake decided it wanted to move in for "a kiss". Then I was scared - but managed to hold it together long enough for the snake to be removed.
The facility not only had most of the top venomous indigenous snakes, it had a salt water croc, lizards and other reptiles and amphibians.
Before we left the lady who placed the snake on me gave us an insight into the wider work they do at the facility. All the handlers are on rota to remove snakes from homes and other places. After recent rain there had been a surge in the number of call outs. It was very fascinating so I will leave you to find out more if you are interested.
Well worth the entry fee.
