We have conducted shows for 2 or 3 people, up to hundred of people. We have many different shows and possibilities depending on your needs and program. Have a question our FAQ doesn’t cover? Let us know and we can add it in for other people as well!

Our shows are usually 1 hour long; however, we can alter this to suit your needs best.

Our shows feature around 12 animals at each presentation including arachnids, amphibians, turtles, tortoises, snakes, lizards and crocodilians.

We have conducted birthday parties for 1 year old’s and a 90-year-old! If your interested in animals, we want to do your show! Most of our bookings are for 6-to-9-year old’s. Younger children may lack some attention span for a full hour program, but we have some tricks to keep them involved as best as we can!

Most of the animals we use for programming have been rescued through the OSPCA, animal control, and local bylaw officers. None of the animals we have in our care can legally be released into the wild, and they would not survive even if they could be.

We don’t require much space for ourselves or our animals. Think more in terms of space for your guests, if they are comfortable then we will make it work. A typical living room is fine. Some of our clients book other facilities to host including schools, program rooms, churches, and more.

We never guarantee this option as we are so dependant on the weather. We always recommend having indoor and outdoor space available and we leave it up to the discretion of the presenter. We can only do outdoor shows when its warm enough for the animals, usually mid June to Mid Sept however many days during these months are still too cold, or raining.

Yes, no problem at all. We have brought our parties and programs to hotels, schools, parks, program rooms, community rooms, churches and more! Some facilities require insurance certificates, just let us know and we can assist with that if needed. We can conduct our shows anywhere!

Anything less we should still be able to accommodate you, however we will already have some commitments to work around.

We try to be as flexible as possible with our clients. If you cancel more than a week in advance, we will just rebook for another date without losing your small deposit. Within the 7 days we can rebook however a new deposit will need to be paid. We understand emergencies come up, just touch base with us so we can work together!
