We visited the Serpentario. It is not big, but it took us an hour to go through. The staff explained the different species, showed how you can identify poisonous snakes and demonstrated the difference between caimans and crocodiles. My son of 5 was mesmerized.

The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Although this is a small exhibit of snakes, if you wish, you are able to hold a snake. Great for photo opportunities to share with your friends and family.
