The enclosures are all brightly lit in vibrant colours, giving a picture-perfect view of the snakes from behind a glass panel. Each exhibit specifically designed to mimic each of the species natural habitats and include sculpted rock, painted backgrounds, ponds and more.
The snakes have plenty of room to experience some of the sensory pleasures they would in nature and are able to wrap themselves around tree trunks, slither up rocks and relax under fan palms.
