Chennai Snake Park - Review

Chennai certainly does love animals, and especially reptile at that! This is depicting in the fact that city along with its crocodile park also has a snake park! Might creep out anyone who loathes all the crawling creatures. But for those who don’t, this place can in fact be very enlightening.

The Chennai Snake Park is an attraction initiated by a herpetologist Romulus Whitaker, in the year 1972. It boasts of the title of being “India's first reptile park”. On your visit here look forward to seeing a variety of snakes in the form of pythons, adders, cobras, vipers, and other reptiles.

Chennai Snake Park, Chennai Reviews

  • The place has ample car park...animals are kept in a quiet atmosphere. Best time would be to visit during weekdays (wed holiday) and not during Sundays to avoid crowd. Certainty worth a visit.

  • A good place to see the reptile kingdom so near. The park features different varieties of snakes, turtles, iguanas, crocodiles and chameleons. Kids can enjoy the view of different reptiles. The park provides some basic knowledge of the reptile kingdom. The marsh crocodiles which are longer than 15 feet attract the crowd. Pythons and king cobras are some other attractions. Overall this is a good place to visit and provides lot of stuff for reptile lovers.. The entry fee is 20/- for adults.

  • We can see types of snake's and crocodile's in this park entrance 20 rupees only for adults ... Children's 10 rs. Igwana...Is also there. Nice place for families and kids.... Small place accepted.strictly prohibited to tease and harm animals. Please carry food with you while going there .... Only chat items available no rice items are there.

  • Limited collection but good. No more live demos, replaced by dull videos, restroom facilities not available, not even a tap for hand wash visible.even the souvenir shop is only noteworthy for eucalyptus oil representing Forest Department . With a good number of visitors better facilities desirable.

  • Fun place to hang out with outside the cages. Inside the cages I wouldn't want to be as an animal. The cages are only mildly clean and visit on a non weekend day there is a possibility of animal movements
