Parassinikkadavu Snake Park

The Parassinikkadavu Snake Park is situated in Anthoor Municipality, around 16 kilometers from Kannur Corporation in the Kannur district of North Kerala, South India. It is located in Parassinikkadavu, just 2 kilometers from National Highway (NH) 17, on the way from Kannur to Taliparamba.

Snakes on Exhibition

The park houses a variety of snakes and other small animals, including the Spectacled Cobra, King Cobra, Russell’s viper, Krait and various pit vipers. There is also a large collection of non-venomous snakes including pythons. The park is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of snakes, many species of which are gradually becoming extinct. In a live show, trained personnel play and ‘interact’ with a variety of snakes, including cobras and vipers, and try to quell mythical fears and superstitions about snakes.[citation needed] It has also been proposed that a laboratory to extract venom from snakes for purposes of research be set up here.
