World renowned serpentarium where vicious and dangerous reptiles are milked of their venom for medical research.
MR. & MRS. W.E. HAAST AT WORK
Scientific force-feeding has been developed by director, W.E. Haast, for venom production, for venom research. Cobra venom extraction and force-feeding climax each tour at the Serpentarium, sole producers of exotic venoms in the New World. "Thus the days begin and end at the Miami Serpentarium, a strange place, where serpents are groomed to sink their fangs into the world, and relieve its pain."
Just below Kendall, Fla. directly on Federal Highway (U.S. 1). 12 miles south of Miami. See "Snakes" of the "World" exhibited in their natural habitat, while you are comfortable and safe. There are many kinds, including the huge python, the deadly cobra, often called "Hooded Death," and the brilliant coral snakes. There is also scientific force feeding, venom extraction and a research laboratory - "Where snakes are groomed to sink their fangs into the world, and relieve its pain." - Mr. W.E. Haast, Curator.
