This year Pete Blake will be returning to present his UK exclusive Venomous Snake Shows! Watch in awe as Pete shows off some of the worlds deadliest snakes including: multiple species of Cobra, Green Mamba, Taipan, Rattlesnake, Puff Adder and a Saw Scale Viper. The shows will be held at 12.30pm and 2.30pm each day in the Ark Arena.
