Located in Mengwi, the park covers more than 2 hectars of land which hosts many endangered species such as the Komodo Dragon, many kinds of crocodiles, cobra snakes and pythons, and various lizards. Apart from reptiles, this park also presents “Debus” trance dances and the amazing crocodile tamer versus the crocodile fighting demonstartions.
Bali’s Reptile Park claims to have the most complete collection of reptiles in Southeast Asia. They do have an 8 meter reticulated python, which is certainly one of the largest snakes in captivity. There is also an extensive collection of Indonesia monitor lizards in addition to the world-renowned huge prehistoric Komodo Dragons, which can reach lengths up to 3m (10 feet). The Bali National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuary itself has pulls fairly large number of visitors due to its wide collection of rare birds and animals.
The Park includes an open air area where guests are encouraged to interact with tame iguanas, crocodile monitors, water monitors, and tortoises. The serpent cave houses one of the largest collections of venomous snakes in the world. You can have a close look at the fearsome King Cobra, Mambas, deadly vipers and an 8 meter Reticulated Python in this reptile park. The park authority will give permission to touch the less venomous reptiles like the gentle iguanas.
It’s an amazing sight to see this animal, which only lives on the Indonesian archipelago the Lesser Sunda islands, mainly on Komodo island and its small neighbour Rinca, and on Flores island.
