Bangkok - The Snake Farm or Queen Saowapha Memorial Institute.

The snake shows strts at 11 a.m. seven days a week There is a thirty-minute slide show presentation prior to the show. There's also a museum showing a number of snakes bottled up in formaldehyde as well as some snake skins unrolled to their full lengths, eggs, and full-color wall photos of the different species found in Thailand. The snakes themselves are kept in enclosures on the grounds which people can have a look at before or after the show.

At the show the first snake that was brought out was a king cobra, which, under the control of the handers was milked for venom and then fed.
