The venomous species include King Cobra, Spectacled Cobra and Russell’s Viper and, among the non-venomous, rat snake, Indian rock python and Red Sand Boa are exhibited to the public.

Continuing with its awareness programme, a free guided tour of the reptile park has also been organised this Saturday and Sunday at 12 noon and 3 pm.

A maximum of 20 visitors in a team can interact with the snake keeper and biologist to gain insight into the life cycle of these snakes.
