Cooooold blooooooded!” Fangs by Dekori is one of the few places where this famous phrase by Dave Chappelle could ring out and be technically true. In this café is a pet experience unlike no other, it is the only one in Malaysia to house reptiles. You heard right: this place allows you to pet snakes and lizards while you order your food. All of us have heard about pet-friendly cafes across the globe. In a first, Malaysia is now home to the first reptile cafe in the world. “Fangs by Dekori” is a premium reptile cafe owned by Malaysian reptile enthusiast Yap Ming Yang. The cafe is situated on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, the nation’s capital. Bearded dragons, leopard geckos, and corn snakes are among the species resting in glass tanks stacked around Yap’s café. As in the video below, the cafe’s glass tanks house a variety of animals that Mr. Yang claims are frequently found in Malaysia. Customers, including children, hold and pet the scaly animals while ordering drinks and food. Customers can enjoy their desserts and drinks while also observing and interacting with these fascinating creatures. Yap Ming Yang hopes that customers upon leaving will have a better view of reptiles and not be afraid of them.
“People only care about furry animals, cats, dogs, but people always leave out reptiles and snakes. So I hope showing the public how interesting (they) are, we can cause them to have a better outlook on reptiles and less loved animals. Visitors to the cafe can take a closer look at the reptiles and even hold them under the supervision of the cafe’s staff. This hands-on experience can be an exciting and educational opportunity for children and adults alike, as they can learn about the different types of reptiles and their unique characteristics. Sticking to the “cooold” theme, Dekori specializes in desserts that can keep customers in low-temperature comfort with some sinful-looking kakigori, a Japanese shaved ice dessert much like the Korean bingsu. They also serve tau fu fa (soybean pudding), waffles, and taro balls swimming in taro milk, any of which can fix the most hankering of sweet tooths.
Let’s go someplace different
Why should you never throw a snake like a boomerang?
Because it’ll come back to bite you.
Do you know why God made snakes before He made lawyers?
He needed the practice.
A snake slithered into a bar and asked the bartender for a beer ‘Sorry’ said the bartender ‘I’m afraid I can’t serve you’. ‘Why not?’ asked the snake.
‘Because you can’t hold your drink,’ replied the bartender.
According to latest news the current Governor of Florida used to own and run his own alligator farm. So not only does he have experience with horrible scaly reptiles.
he’s also worked with alligators.
