The snake farm and exhibitions are interesting. This is one of the few such centers around the world where venom is collected to help people who are bitten by snakes.

I am terrified of snakes but my significant other wanted to see the king cobras and pythons. He was able to hold one of the pythons and an iguana. The snake show was a bit unnerving but I still manage to enjoy it.

Hey there! I wish I could remember how much exactly it was, but it was no more than $5 USD. I just remember it was crazy cheap, and my daughter who was 3 at the time got in free.

Yes, you can go in and out as many times as you want during one day! But you need to show your ticket every time!
