At the Amazon Museum - Muse there is a vivarium that currently houses species such as the northern jararaca-do-norte (Bothrops atrox) - boa constrictor (Boa constrictor), and others. These animals live in terrariums that have been developed to ensure the utmost safety for keepers, researchers and visitors. Visitors learn how to distinguish between venomous and non-venomous snakes, their feeding and reproductive habits, how often their skin changes, the particularities of their dentition, their types of locomotion and their sensitive perceptual systems. The snake nursery emerged in 2015 from a partnership between the Amazon Museum (Musa) and the Doctor Heitor Vieira Dourado Tropical Medicine Foundation (FMT-HVD), which has had an Ophidism Centre since 1984. The main objectives of the Musa nursery are education, biotechnological research and scientific dissemination. "The serpentarium was born out of a partnership with the Tropical Medicine Foundation, the snakes from there came here, and from that they came up with the idea of an exhibition to bring the snakes into contact with people and raise environmental awareness," said Letícia Monteiro, an intern at Musa. "We have fourteen animals on display, others aren't because they're kept separate for research that isn't relevant to the sample, a total of seven species," said Renata Rodrigues, an intern at Musa
