Love snakes?

Then you so need to visit the Snake Temple. During the summer, you’ll be stepping amongst free-roaming pythons and brightly-coloured butterflies in an impressive enclosure designed to resemble fragments of the Angkor Wat temple, where the Khmer tribe reached the pinnacle of their power around AD 1,000.

The Snake Temple is open all year round, but because its residents are not exactly designed to cope with a Danish winter, they will only be in the open between 18 March and 23 October in 2016. Luckily, its non-snake residents are not quite so sensitive, and when the snakes are taken inside for the winter, you can still see the inquisitive dwarf mongoose, the deadly accurate archer fish, lots of frogs and weaver ants with their sculptural nests. 

A deadly "hug"

The inhabitants of the Snake Temple are relatively small, non-poisonous constrictors and therefore of no danger to you. But please do not touch them - they can bite!

 

 

A living glue gun

When weaver ants build their nests, they do it up in the trees - not on the ground. They fold and 'weave' the leaves together using silk from their larvae.
