Angolan Snake Park Advice Needed

Postby Angola snakes » Tue Aug 25, 2015 1:42 am

Dear All

We are planning to build and open a snake park in Luanda Angola. I would like to hear from the members if they have any ideas/advise on this topic that they don't mind sharing. Would only house snakes from Angola. We believe there is enough types in Angola to have a proper snake park.

No exotics will be housed. Would like to hear from members on building the cages and which way is the safest as there will be Hot ones in the park. We like the idea of not handling the hot snakes. Please assist. Regards Daniel

I think it would be a good idea to have a few exotic species on display. Perhaps only exotic African species at least ?
The way to success has no shortcuts.

Dear fellow members:

I am trying to put together the most important snakes in Africa. Venomous and non Venomous. Could the members assist in advising me on who and where we can buy (legal) these snakes for export to Angola. Could you also advise me on the best type of glass and mm would be best and safe for visitors to our establishment.

Out of members experience: is bigger cages stressful for the snakes? We would like to make sure the snakes have got good space to move around. We are also interested to have at least two of the same type of snakes in one cage.

Thank you in Advance.
