About Chennai Snake Park Trust

Are you game to hold a slithering sliding snake in your hands? Or learn why the snake charmer is not scared of his snake? Head to Chennai Snake Park or the Guindy Snake Park as it is often called. Here you get a chance to see how venom is extracted from snakes to render them harmless. You may even get a chance to hold a non-poisonous variety in your hands. The Snake Park is located in Guindy, Chennai, on the Sardar Patel Road, as part of Children’s Park within the Guindy National Park campus, but with a different entrance. Spread over an acre of land the park houses a wide variety of snakes from pythons, cobras, vipers, to adders and numerous other reptiles. It is India’s first reptile park. The Chennai Snake Park Trust is actually an NGO started by herpetologist Romulus Whitaker in 1972. If you are with kids do visit this somewhat offbeat attraction of Chennai.

Pro Tip: Visit the Snake Park when you visit Guindy National Park as it is right next to it. If you are with kids. Definitely take them here and to the Children's Park as both of these lie within the Guindy Park campus.
