All shows performed during weather that is below 70º Fahrenheit must be held indoors.

We offer two styles of presentations when you book with us

Our shows are a total of 2 hours in duration featuring 15+ reptiles from around the world. Both styles of shows offered below feature a hands on and interactive experience.

FULL EDUCATIONAL SHOW:

This style show gives our audience lots of information about each reptile; such as where they come from, what they eat, how they defend themselves, how big they get and more. We also showcase some fun facts about each animal as well to keep things interesting. We like to have fun and keep things as entertaining as possible.

*This style show is great for older audience groups, ages 7 and up seem to prefer this style show.

This show lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes long with an additional 45 minutes after the show for holding and photo time. Get your photo taken with any of the reptiles! For the older audience groups, we even offer close encounters with tarantulas! At the end of the show you have the opportunity to have a tarantula walk across your hand!

PETTING ZOO STYLE SET UP:

With this style show we run through some basic facts about each reptile, such as where they come from, what they eat, and how long they live. We showcase many more fun facts about each animal as well to keep things interesting. We like to have fun and keep things as entertaining as possible. 

**This style show is great for younger audience groups, ages 6 and younger seem to prefer this style show

This show lasts about 30min with an additional 1 to 1.5 hours for holding and photo time. For the younger audiences the kids can come up in groups of 7 or 8 and line up holding our 12 foot python for a group photo! They can each hold some of our adorable reptiles such as our bearded dragons and small snakes too! 

At every show, we usually bring at least three no-touch animals. These animals will not be brought into the crowd to be touched for the following reasons:

  • The tarantulas’ hairs can cause an allergic reaction when touched
  • Some of the animals are very shy and fragile, and may react if handled too roughly

We will not be including large-scale reptiles such as alligators, crocodiles, any species of monitor lizard, or venomous snakes in our shows. We prefer to keep our shows as interactive as possible and we feel that these species may be too unpredictable around children. However, we will be including Boa Constrictors ranging from six to eight feet in length, a ten-foot Albino Burmese Python*, and a four-foot Red Iguana (among many other reptiles).

If you are booking a show for a special needs child, or if one of your guests will be bringing a special needs child, please let us know in the “comments” section of the booking form. We would like to make the child feel included and safe around the animals. If possible, also include any special details about the child that you feel we should be aware of.

We ask that any furry or feathery members of the family be safely kept in a separate room during our program to maximize safety, not only for you and your family, but for us and ours as well!

We do not offer refunds for canceled shows, however, you will be able to re-book your show at any time.

If you would like to customize your show and choose what animals we do (and don’t) bring, please e-mail us to ask for a list of our animals to choose from. Please be aware, however, that this list is subject to change at any time (but we can assure you that it will not affect the show’s quality in any way!).

Please double check that you have a correct address, time and date for the show, and a correct and active email address when booking. If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail within one hour, please contact us at 978-730-8370, or at info@nershows.com.
