We went to the Samui Crocodile Farm to see the Crocodile and Cobra Shows. They also have a small zoo on the property with monkeys, reptiles, and birds. The zoo was not impressive by first world standards; however it seems like they are doing the best they can with what they have. The shows were great and everything is VERY up close and personal! It was definitely a thrilling experience that gets your heart pounding. Our favorite was the cobra show! The handlers are genuine snake handling experts. The snakes are still venomous and are not artificially cooled prior to the show to make them slower. There were some parts of the show that people were so nervous they moved back a couple rows. If you have ever had the strange desire to touch a king cobra – here is your chance. Towards the end of the show, one of the handlers allows guests to touch the back of one.
