The New England Reptile Shows Team!

Changing the world one snake at a time.

Eric Erickson
Eric EricksonOwner, Performer
Eric, aka “The Reptile Man” is the strong and quiet type, and the one who handles our largest animals, (pictured above with Casper) as well as our scariest ones such as the tarantulas and the scorpions!

Jodi Erickson
Jodi EricksonMarketing Manager, Performer
Jodi (pictured above with Bruno) is the clown of the show and a favorite among the younger audiences (and by extension, the parents!) She loves to include the audience into the show as much as possible and always gives out the most outlandish answers to the other handlers’ questions.
Joshua Tyler
Joshua TylerPerformer
Joshua is Emily’s brother, and even though he’s 22 years old, he’s still a kid at heart and mind. He has special needs but has overcome many of the obstacles those disabilities have thrown at him. He’s been with us for a few shows now and is already starting to master the facts! We are very proud of him.
Emily Erickson
Emily EricksonFounder, Performer
Emily (pictured above with Draco) is the backbone of the team, the one who started the business! Without Emily we would not have a show. This young lady is very knowledgeable about the animals we work with and has been handling reptiles for over 10 years! (At 19 years old, that’s saying something!)
