I hear you there, Mark! Expensive for the average vendor, and even as a paid exhibit, I would not do it. Something about having snakes, gators and monitors in a building of potential prey is just looking for trouble.
I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, stranger, I am ungrateful to these teachers.
