Package Time

Interaction Level

Hands on


Starting at $275 + HST

Our birthday parties, Bar Mitzvah and celebrations provide the unforgettable opportunity to interact with exotic animals while at the same time learning about the animals’ biology, conservation issues, and responsible pet ownership.

Our celebrations are not just for kids! We often attend parties and private experiences for adults and seniors. Have that camera ready; pictures are encouraged!

We present to groups as small as 1 -5 people to groups larger than 500. 

We recommend booking an extra handler for larger events to help maximize interaction time.

However, we can work with you to create an experience for all group sizes.

  • Minimum 1 hour, but additional time can be added.
  • Requesting a shorter presentation and filling the time with more meet and greet and pictures.
  • Adding an extra handler to facilitate more interactions with larger group sizes.
  • Handlers arrive 15 min early for set up.
    • If you believe that your venue will necessitate longer load-in time (downtown venues, large buildings, etc.), please discuss with us to add time to allow for load-in and load-out.
  • 10×10 ft space for the handlers, supplies, and animal carriers. The participants should sit beyond this area in a half circle or one row so the handler can walk easily around and up close with the animals
    • Smaller spaces are possible; our handlers are great at using whatever space they are given!
  • A parking spot as close to where we are offloading as possible.
  • An adult to watch over animal carriers for the few minutes when we are offloading to make sure no one is peeking or poking into carriers.
  • Adult presence during the presentation to facilitate the children. Please remember that our job is to handle animals. It is not our place to be parents to the children as well. Besides, we love it when adults join in too!
  • A quiet and controlled environment for the animals. If at any point the noise level becomes too loud or the participants are unable to follow our safety rules, our handlers reserve the right to stop the presentation.
