I was very suprised of the big variety of snakes, although I am not a repltile person it was nice to see the different types. It would be nice though if there is a guide that tell you more.

Thank you very much for your interest. It is not always possible to have a guide available, but do ask for Stretch, Stuart or John in case one of them is nearby.

Thank you Alejandra for your visit and we appreciate your comments. We are keenly aware of the fact that we should improve our facilities, and as we are able, we are replacing cages etc. Of course, it all comes down to the cost😨.
