What / Why :

The Snake Farm or Queen Saowapha Memorial Institute, formerly the Pasteur Institute, is set up to produce anti-venom serum for snake-bite victims nationwide. Venomous snakes including the king cobra, Siamese cobra, Russell's viper, banded krait, Malayan pit viper, green pit viper and Pope's pit viper are milked daily for their venom to make snake-bite antidote. Venom-milking and snake-handling shows are held daily at 10.30 am and 2.00 pm on weekdays, and 10.30 am on public holidays. Lots of information on herpetology and toxicology is available at the institute.

The Snake Farm is located on Rama IV Road, near Henri Dunant Avenue, within the Thai Red Cross Institute. If you happen to get bitten by a snake or any other kind of animal then this is a good place to come for treatment. Vaccinations are available for cholera, smallpox, typhoid, hepatitis and rabies as well as snake bite.
