NAPLES, Fla. – The Naples Zoo is proud to introduce a brand new home for two of their snakes.

The zoo’s Burmese python and reticulated python will now have a brand new state of the art place to slither around.

The horseshoe type structure will give visitors a 180 degree look inside the snakes’ home, allowing them to see every angle of the habitat and animals. Visitors will feel like they’re right there with lower level glass and upper level mesh that the snakes can come right up to.

Sammie the zoo’s 11-foot Burmese python and Kaa their 19-foot reticulated python will enjoy lush vegetation and branches, even a pool to help them stay cool on hot summer days.

“Having this exhibit gives us a great chance for people to not only see two extraordinary animals but to learn about their natural history and to learn about the problem that pythons and other non-native species pose here in Florida,” said Zach Marchetti, one of the reptile keepers at the Naples Zoo.

The Python Exhibit officially opens to the public on Saturday, June 13. For hours and additional zoo information, click here. The Naples Zoo is located at 1590 Goodlette-Frank Road.
