Since the Garden of Eden, snakes have had a bad rap. New Mexico is home to numerous reptile species, including between thirty and forty species of snake. Of these many snake species, eight are venomous, and of those, seven are types of rattlesnake. The varied natural habitats of the state and a warm climate make it an ideal home for cold-blooded creatures like snakes and other reptiles. The Rattlesnake Museum hosts more different species than the Bronx Zoo, the Philadelphia Zoo, the National Zoo, the Denver Zoo, the San Francisco Zoo and the San Diego Zoo, all combined! Join us to explore the myths, cure phobias and uncover the mysteries of this fascinating, but misunderstood corner of the animal kingdom.
