The Greek Reptile Center

The Greek Reptile Center offers one of the largest collections of reptiles in all of Europe. The center hosts live snakes and lizards from all over the world including 6 types of pythons (up to 6 meters in length!), 3 types of boas, 7 types of rattlesnakes, 6 types of cobras and king cobras, black mambas, anacondas, iguanas, and dozens of other reptiles. The only poisonous snakes in Greece, vipers (οχιάς in Greek), are also on display. A trip to the Greek Reptile Center is a special treat for children. The center provides an opportunity for children to experience the world of snakes first-hand and learn from an expert who has been caring for the snakes for over 30 years.
The center is located just outside of Athens, Greece in the in Antonis Tritsis Environmental Education & Sensitization Park and is open daily from 8am to 10pm. For information about the center -- including directions, visiting hours, and more -- click here.
