A TOURING exhibition exploring the fascinating world of snakes opens at Wiltshire Museum in Devizes on Saturday.

This exhibition delves into the captivating life of snakes, bringing to light their beauty, mystery and amazing natural history. Using taxidermy, skeletal mounts and award winning photography the exhibition demonstrates the distinctive features and behaviours of these extraordinary creatures, including King Cobras, Pythons and Puff Adders.

It is family friendly display and also supports the science national curriculum for schools.

A spokesman said: "Visitors will find out about snake anatomy, venom, senses, growth, and habitat, whilst having fun with some amazing interactives."

Family events are being organised and will include Jonathan’s Jungle Roadshow, a snake interactive and craft activities on April 16.

Heather Ault, Exhibitions Officer, at Wiltshire Museum said: "We look forward to children bringing their parents and grandparents to learn all there is to know about these amazing reptiles."

Museum director, David Dawson said: "We are very grateful to the Jack Lane Charitable Trust for grant aid, and to society members who contributed donations towards the cost of hiring the exhibition.

"This touring exhibition has been developed by Blue Tokay, who specialise in displays of natural history and have a portfolio of touring exhibitions for museums, galleries and cultural or science venues."

It will be on display in the Museum until April 28.
