This is an unusual, exotic and rather hair-raising attraction, that is not for the squeamish! This research institute was set up to find antidotes for poisonous animal and insect bites, and is now a world-leader in its field. There are four main sections: the Biological Museum with live spiders, scorpions, vipers, frogs, lizards and other poisonous creatures; the Snake House where dozens of these reptiles live outdoors; the Historical Museum and last but not least, the Monkey House.
