We completely understand your concern. While we have definitely encountered those that are afraid and hesitant to touch or get close to the reptiles, we never …ever approach anyone with a reptile who is afraid, we always give them as much space as they need.
We are happy to say that even those who are afraid at first, 99% of the time, end up not only touching but holding even some of our larger reptiles. You would be amazed at how comfortable they become once they learn a bit about them. We always start off with smaller reptiles then work our way up so this gives them the chance to get acclimated with them as we go.
I must admit my favorite thing about what we do is seeing those that are afraid holding and loving a reptile while getting their photo taken with a huge smile! For the birthday kids, even if they are afraid to hold them we always find a way to include them, we even have a magic wand and they get to be a magician and make a snake grow!
We always say; “anything that has teeth is capable of biting, but these reptiles were born and raised in captivity and they are very used to human contact, they are extremely docile, so the chances of them biting are slim to none”.
YES! If you book with us online, you will be redirected to a thank you page that will have a link for you to download a copy of our certificate of insurance. If you book over the phone we can either email you a copy or bring one with us to the show.
We would bring one fold up table for the presentation of the reptiles, and one smaller one for the “Hands on Table” so we would need enough space for those, and for the audience to be in front of that and us to be in back. We have worked in small spaces and we can also present outside (in nice weather above 60 degrees is required) and inside as well.
If you have four legged furry family members we ask that they are not allowed near the reptiles for the safety of both your pets and ours.
Finally, make sure your audience is ready to have some fun!
We typically can have everything set up within about a half hour prior to show time.
Shows are 2 hours long, one hour for the presentation and one hour for hands on and photo time.
For smaller audiences we have a lot more hands on time during the presentation with photo time after the show, but for larger audiences we welcome the everyone to come up and engage with us and the reptiles at the end of the show to ask questions, hold, touch and even get your pictures taken.
We will bring everything, all we need is a place to set up so that we have space enough for our table and for the audience to be in front of us and comfortable, preferably sitting down.
Absolutely, if you would like to pick and choose, we are happy to send you a list of what we have, all you have to do is ask.

NO! Don’t worry, we do not carry venomous snakes. A license is required for those and we prefer the not so dangerous kinds anyway.
