Opened to the public in the year 1923, the snake farm in Bangkok, part of the Thai Red Cross Institute (formerly the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute) has large pits and mesh enclosures to host its reptile residents. Also called “Suan Nguu”, the snake farm hosts a variety of venomous and non-venomous snakes. It’s the second oldest such snake farm in the world after a snake farm in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
The Snake Farm functions on ethical grounds of respecting snakes as an essential part of our ecology. The snakes here are left to their own devices in their new habitats. The handlers and caretakers here are well-trained in handling the reptiles. They deal with many types of snakes like rainbow snakes, green tree snakes, and even the dangerous striped branded krait every day. It’s no wonder that this place sees almost 50,000 tourists every year!
