History of the Edisto Island Serpentarium

Opened to the public in July of 1999, the Edisto Island Serpentarium is a culmination of more than 50 years of snake hunting adventure and experience by brothers Ted and Heyward Clamp of Edisto Island, SC. The modern indoor facility and beautifully landscaped outdoor gardens house a wide variety of reptiles, mostly those collected by the Clamp brothers and native to the southeastern United States.

The reptiles in the outdoor gardens are not displayed behind glass but are viewed by visitors who look over low-walled enclosures to observe the snakes living in streams, climbing in trees or basking on stumps or logs exactly as they would be seen if encountered in the wild. The exhibit was purposely designed in this order hopefully to give visitors the same thrill and exhilaration which the Clamp brothers have enjoyed for years and still feel whenever they suddenly encounter a reptile in its natural habitat.
