  • The Kingdom of Snakes

    They are quick, majestic and everywhere! They slither silently to hide from predators or to capture their prey. But have no fear! These 250-odd snakes, covered in thousands of scintillating yellow lights, are only here to capture your imagination. All too often seen as symbols of fear, these snakes instead represent wisdom, composure and agility. They wish you nothing but well. Forget snake charmers. These cobras will charm you as soon as you enter the gates to their kingdom.
