This was interesting reading. I’ve not heard of something like this for a long time here in Thailand. Apparently Thailand’s National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department officials raided 3 different snake ‘farms’ – which really aren’t farms at all, they’re just snake shows for tourists.
Pythons, cobras, and other snakes were confiscated – some being taken to the Queen Saovabha Snake Farm in Bangkok, which really is a sort of snake farm. Not sure they focus on breeding, but they do venom collection and it is the best known snake facility in Thailand.
