Kentucky Reptile Zoo
There are several places to check out cool snakes in the Red River Gorge area, but the Kentucky Reptile Zoo is by far the biggest and the best. Animals on exhibit here include cobras, vipers, rattlesnakes, and an 18 foot reticulated python. Not to mention an alligator named Fluffy.
If snakes - serious snakes, scary snakes (like, so venomous that you could drop dead just looking at them) are too intense for you, then this place probably isn't your cup of bourbon. But they do have some really cool turtles and tortoises too. The zoo is at 1275 Natural Bridge Road in Slade.
Seen here is a video from the Kentucky Reptile Zoo's YouTube archives, of Malayan Pit Viper eggs hatching.
