    At the beginning of November several Moellendorff's snakes have hatched at the Serpentarium :).

    It seems that the Serpentarium will close its doors before the end of the year. The rent is to high ( at the moment 6000 Euros a month but the group which is owner of the building is willing to drop the price to 4500 Euros ) but even with the cheaper rent its to expensive with only around 50.000 visitors a year. The KMPA which is running the Serpentarium ( and also the Zoo of Antwerp and Dierenpark Planckendaell ) is now looking if they can find another location the house the Serpentarium.

    Luckily the Serpentarium still exist ( maybe found a solution to keep it open ?? ) but now the Serpentarium recieved 6 Cornsnakes, 5 Oriental fire-bellied toads and a pair of Red Tegus from Antwerp Zoo. These animals orginate from the now closed Aquatopia.
