Orlando is home to one of the world’s leading venom farms and they let you watch as they extract the venom from the snakes. Reptile World Serpentarium has hundreds of venomous snakes that are milked on a daily basis for their valuable venom. The precious commodity is then shipped worldwide for use in medical and herpetological research. You will be able to view the snakes sinking their fangs into a membrane stretched over a collection glass and watch as the venom is released. Snake handlers perform the milking of the different snakes, which include coral snakes, rattlers and cobras, twice a day. While visiting Reptile World you will also be able to see snakes from right here in Florida as well as more exotic and deadly snakes, like the Australian Taipan. There are also six species of cobra and eleven kinds of rattlesnakes.
You will be amazed by the venom show at Reptile World in Orlando.
