The Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo began simply as the Snake Farm, which was incredibly popular among New Braunfels attractions since its opening in 1967.
At the time, it was a home for reptiles, snakes, and various historic mammals, and it grew into a famous roadside attraction.
Ownership of the Snake Farm changed in 2007, prompting its rebranding into the Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo.This change allowed it to expand its repertoire, providing over 500 various animals in addition to the snakes and reptiles of old.
Capuchin monkeys, longhorns, cats, exotic birds, and more filled the expanded displays.The Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo would become an officially accredited zoo in 2012.
Today, it continues to grow in popularity, providing snake-handling events, animal feeding watch events, and animal stewardship and conservation education.
It still has a lot of the original exhibits it had back when it was just Snake Farm, all renovated and restored while providing more space for the animals within.
If you’re an animal enthusiast, you must add the Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo to your list of New Braunfels’ places to visit!
