The snake farm in Bangkok is not just a place to demonstrate snakes to tourists, but is one of the premier snake anti-venom research facilities in the world.

The Thai Red Cross Society considered it necessary to establish a snake farm for keeping different poisonous snakes for poison collection for treatment of snake poisoning.
The snake farm is an attraction in Bangkok for tourists from all parts of the world. Different kinds of poisonous snakes found in the country are kept for poison extraction which is demonstrated to the public. Poisonous snakes found in Thailand are Cobra, King Cobra, Banded Krait, Russell's Viper, a few species of Pit Vipers and some species of Sea Snakes. These snakes are milked of their poison on a regular basis to provide hospitals throughout South East Asia with the much needed antipoison. The Snake Farm also educates the Thai public to help identify which snakes are deadly so as to prevent the unnecessary killing of the innocuous and endangered snakes.
