This Snake Park is located close to Guindy National Park. The Park dedicated to Snakes although there are few lizards, Chameleons, Crocodiles, Aligators and Turtles as well. Several species of snakes are seen here. Russels Viper, King Cobra, Rat Snake, Boar, Python etc. are so fascinating. This is also a breeding center for snakes.

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.

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!
