one word, horrible! Cambodians in general can be cruel to animals, but this place tops it. Reptiles (mainly snakes) are kept under terrible conditions. Fish and turtles are even worse. Not to mention the birds and a stressed out monkey(!). This place has nothing to do with a zoo, it is nothing more then a private rich Russian animal collection. Most (if not all) of the animals are caught in the wild, that makes it even worse to see the horrible conditions they are in now.

Owner claims to be biologist‌ but I really cannot imagine that a biologist would keep his animals like this. Most of the compounds are in a terrible condition. Dirty and overcrowded. Too bad, because the location is actually quite nice but the current state is unacceptable. Fix this problem, then you could also charge without problems a higher entrance fee

Visited the Snake House today. Mixed feelings... $3 to enter (if you eat at their restaurant entrance is free). Impressive collection of reptiles but very very sad. Most of the terrariums and aquariums are very dirty and the creatures look very thin. There are at least 3 massive snakes who are kept in pretty unsafe terrariums, meaning that if they were at full strength and wanted to do something they could break the glass. Anyway, the animals don't look too happy. However, there is a parrot saying "hello" at the entrance. The beer at the bar is $1.60.

The Snake House located at the bottom of Victory Hill section of Sihanoukville is a sprawling Restaurant-Hotel-Mini-zoo complex. The grounds are cleverly designed to accent a jungle theme with many forms of indigenous exotic flowers. I’ve visited the Snake House several times over the years I’ve lived in SHV to see its mini-zoo. The Snake House’s forte is its selection of reptiles. I’m impressed with the health and vigor of the various snakes, lizards and the humungous crocodile exhibit. Reptiles are probably some of the most difficult critters to maintain. Snake House’s assortment is notable. The owner is something of a herpetologist; he obviously has a way with the care and feeding of reptiles. My family and I inevitably have a terrific time viewing all the wildlife. The enclosures are clean and from the bright eyes of the animals quite well fed and healthy. I have never dined there or stayed in one of the bungalows. The restaurant area has a prominent aquarium display inhabited by many species of fish. Well worth a visit.
