New Exhibit Now Open!

Admission to Venom is included with your paid admission to the Flint RiverQuarium.

Each year more people die from bee and wasp stings in the United States of America than all venomous snake bites. Why do we worry so much about the six species of venomous snakes found in South Georgia? What about those pesky Black Widow, Brown Widow and Brown Recluse Spiders and the threat they present? Have you ever stepped on a Fire Ant mound and felt the wrath of hundreds of these alien insects? Is venom the same as poison and if not what difference does it make? Have you ever petted an Atlantic Stingray or even heard of a Scorpion Fish? Can you tell the difference between a Cottonmouth or Water Moccasin and the other perfectly harmless water snakes that abound in the rivers, creeks and back waters of Southwest Georgia? Have you even seen a Coral Snake and the two harmless mimics that look somewhat like it? What is the safest and best way to treat snake bite or bee and wasp stings?

The answer to these questions and a chance to get face time with these venomous creatures await you as a visitor to VENOM: A PAINFULLY EXCITING EXHIBIT now open at the Flint RiverQuarium Adventure Center.
