If you enjoy reptiles, Texas is a terrific place to be. With more than 120 species to choose from, our state has more snake species than any other. Several species of native Texas snakes are available for viewing in the exhibit. You will have an opportunity to sort fact from fiction by learning more about the lives of these fascinating, often-feared and misunderstood creatures.

Photographs and the opportunity to closely examine live examples provide a wonderful opportunity to gain knowledge in the identification of snakes. Several species of non-venomous snakes are included for comparison with the venomous species they most resemble. Information on snake bites and venom is available as well.
