Wild Florida’s Snake Exhibit Destroyed By Fire
All the reptiles in the exhibit perished in the electrical fire.
Wild Florida, an Orlando, FL area safari park, announced on Facebook that an electrical fire destroyed the safari park’s snake exhibit, killing all the reptiles in the exhibit. No people were reported injured in the fire.
“Sad to report a small electrical fire destroyed our snake exhibit today. Unfortunately none of the reptiles survived the fire and it breaks our heart to lose these beautiful animals,” the park wrote on Facebook.
We are thrilled to announce that we’re the new wildlife partner for Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center! We will be…
“No one else was harmed or injured in the accident. We plan to rebuild and continue to provide a safe, educational experience for our guests. This incident will not interrupt our normal business operations and we’ll be fully open tomorrow, Dec 14th. Fitting end to a rough year…2020 will always be remembered as a rebuilding year!”
The park lost all of its venomous and non-venomous snakes in the fire. It is known for its alligators, and especially its albino alligators, sulcata tortoises, green bush viper and cobras. The park offers a variety of animal interactions, and is known for its alligator interactions. Hopefully the snake exhibit will be built back better than before in time for a 2021 reopening.
Starting today off with a little green! #thisiswildflorida #stpatricksday
