Get outta town: The American International Rattlesnake Museum

by DGO Web Administrator

Weirdo fact that will make you cramp up: A rattlesnake egg stays inside its momma until the egg hatches. Yowza. Snakes then pass the egg and hatchee. These snakes can then live 15 to 20 years and grow up to seven feet long.

Dig on these slither-critters? Head down to Albuquerque to the American International Rattlesnake Museum. The name is a misnomer. The “museum” is more of a display house of rad snakes and gila monsters, plus a gift shop. There’s also a fairly large exhibit of snake memorabilia that includes toys, engravings, vintage movie posters, books, and a whole lotta random other rattler-ness.

Not gonna lie, this serpentarium is small, but if you want to feel like you’re on first date in a wacky Wes Anderson flick, you should stop by on your next trip to the ABQ. It’s plenty worth the fiver it will cost to get in the door.
