This Serpentarium takes you to the facinating world of reptiles, amphibians, insect, spiders and other small creatures. Ever animal lives in a terarium showing the animals habitat.
The serpentarium has a long history on its back, all starting with the passion Marnick Croes. He startet a small collection as a 15 year old kid wich has been growing ever since. In the begining he showed his animals in public schools, and in 1994 he opened a small exehibition at the Bellewaerde Parken for 2 months. This was also targeted for public schools and similar institutions. In 1996 he then spoke to the mayor and the community of Blankenberge, so that he could open a terarium. This place opened in 1998. After have been designing every enclosure him self in that way that they where controled by a computer (one of the first ever to do this) the house could open 1998. He started with 45 terariums and has grown ever since, so that you finde 115 terariums today all with different animals.
