There are a lot of animals that get a bad reputation in this world, and unfortunately people can’t see the amazing things they contribute to this planet.
That’s what the American International Rattlesnake Museum is all about! They want to give families not just an entertaining and unique experience, but one that educates on some misunderstood creatures.
The museum is actually a conservation museum, which shows all who visits the hundreds of ways that the rattlesnakes, as well as other creatures who are considered “less desirable”. have had a impact on the planet, and also our lives.
Through memorabilia, artifacts, and now don’t be scared, but the LARGEST collection of live rattlesnake species in the WORLD! Crazy! There are most species than the Bronx Zoo, National Zoo, Denver Zoo, San Francisco, San Diego, AND Philadelphia zoos…all combined! That’s amazing!
The Rattlesnake Museum has species from all over the Americas – from the north, central and of course the south. They are all presented in beautiful recreated habitats, so the snakes don’t feel out of place from where they would naturally grow up.
Once you have finished checking out the snakes themselves, you can check out some of the very cool snake memorabilia!
The museum explores the myths of the snakes, and can even cure phobias once people really understand them. It’s a fascinating, eye opening, and educational family day out in New Mexico…don’t forget to read up on all the hiss….tory of the snakes! (Get it…? Hiss….it’s good isn’t it!)
Don’t forget to say hi to the snakes! There certainly are plenty of them…!
