Hi JM. As I recall this section of the snakes was for selling something but it wasn't for consumption. It had a desert theme with sand, rocks and old wood etc. We would tap on the glass to try and make them snakes move until the proprietor told us to knock it off. Whatever he was selling it was a great hook to get folks to his stall. Maybe tonight around 2am I may recall more as my recall is now a bit stunted.
