Deano’s Snake Shack


Deano’s Snake Shack ​

We are a small, reptile rescue centre based right here on the Macs Farm! It is run by Deano Mac and was started 8 years ago after he took on an abused corn snake (now named Rumplesnakeskin)! Taking on this poor animal made Deano realise how many unwanted reptiles there are out there, who are in desperate need of an amazing and loving forever home.

Because of the values that the Snake Shack holds, and the passion that Deano has for these animals, today it is home to over 20 different species! We open our doors for private sessions to educate the public on these amazing creatures, with the hope that it will ultimately have an impact on how they are viewed and treated.

Visit the Snake Shack

The Snake Shack offers private sessions that allow you to come and meet and learn all about these incredible creatures!

We never take the animals out to visit other places and it is not always open to the public as this can be harmful and stressful to them. Visits and experiences must be booked in advance.
