Featuring more than 100 species of snakes, most of them deadly, the Serpentarium boasts the largest collection of venomous reptiles in the world. The owner is the major breeder of the spectacular South American bushmaster, the world's longest and deadliest pit viper. The Serpentarium displays the world's only breeding colony of the nearly extinct, blackheaded bushmaster, among other rare finds. Dangerous and fierce reptiles from every continent are represented, including king cobras, spitting cobras, Australian taipans, black mambas, Gaboon vipers, gigantic pythons, Gila monsters, Nile crocodiles, a 7-foot monitor lizardsand and dozens of others all living in their own lush dynaramas, developed for the Serpentarium by the minds of local movie industry and construction crews.  Any day is a sight at The Serpentarium, but visitors rant and rave over feeding day, which is held once a week at no extra charge. The Serpentarium is open daily 11 AM to 5 PM, but in winter months, it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. All tickets cost $8. Group tours are available, and school groups are welcome.
