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
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.
Good place for young kids and also for reptile enthusiasts. If you are coming here to get into the national park (as I did) then it's not going to happen, they don't allow visitors into the national park. Snake park and children's park are two small zoos accessible to visitors. Don't have your expectations high.
This is a small place. Does not have a variety of snakes available for viewing. Though they have put up important and crucial information about the snakes. There are a few snakes which are repeated so probably because they are different age or sex. The crocodile collection is amazing though. It's worth going to see them.
A nice place located within the city near to children's park where you can see varieties of replies. This is a nice place to spend weekend with children as children with love the natural air and also will have an idea about the reptiles. As this is located within the same campus of children park the are ample car parking space available here. One can reach this place by public bus as well. Love this place
What's good: 1. Varieties of different snakes, reptiles and crocodiles. 2. Clear displayed details for each of them. 3. Low priced entry fees. What's bad: 1. Water for animals not changed since many days. 2. Maintenance needs lot of improvement, dirty walls of enclosures. 3. Merchandise and take aways nil.
