      South Carolina has the largest variety of venomous snakes in the country. Those snakes that are captured are brought here and used to produce antivenin. This attraction houses both indoor and outdoor exhibits of reptiles (not only snakes, but also alligators, turtles and lizards) enjoying their native habitats. Reptile experts make presentations four times daily, handling venomous and non-venomous snakes to the delight and awe of visitors.

      If you go:
      The Serpentarium is closed on Sundays and during the winter except for holiday events from mid-November to mid-December. The indoor exhibits are open from March through October, while the outdoor exhibits are open from April through Columbus Day.
