Reptile Encounter Parties

Not looking forward to another birthday party at a bounce house or crowded place with generic fun? Consider a Reptile birthday party.

Reptile birthday parties offer a chance at a unique, fun, and even educational party. Reptile Birthday parties are always interactive fun for whoever is willing to touch the reptiles and a chance to try something new for the more reserved of the group.

Reptile Encounters are a great way to educate people about reptiles as well as liven up a party or social gathering.

Consider reptile encounters for school carnivals, open houses, birthday parties, school talks and festivals, boy and girl scout meetings, birthday parties, and other events that you can dream up!

Everything is better with reptiles!!

We bring non-venomous, non-aggressive and safe animals. We also provide waterless hand sanitizer before and after contact with our pets. The goal is to excite the children and have fun, so they can laugh and understand that reptiles are animals like most others.We talk about basic reptile facts, reptiles as pets, native reptiles, and then answer as many questions as time allows.

If you have used us for a reptile encounter we would love to hear about your experience. Please take some time to share you experience with others who are considering the reptile encounters for an event. Please sign the guestbook below and leave comments. Thanks!

Below I have listed the basic packages. All parties and packages can be modified to accommodate individual needs and ideas. As secondary public school teachers and reptile keepers we understand the need to educate with fun and interaction so we can promise that you will not disappointed.

Birthday Parties

The parties are always catered to the age and experience of the party goers so they are truly a unique experience.

Special Gift for the birthday child at all parties.

Max party time of 3 hours to reduce extra stress on the animals.

Reptile Birthday Showcase: $100 per hour

There is no show. Rather we set up with the animals and everyone can visit with the animals at their leisure as we answer any questions about the animals. This works well if we are part of a party rather than the sole attraction.

This can also be booked in addition to another package. It is $50 for an extra half hour, and $75 for each additional hour if added to another package. 

Reptile Encounter Party: $200 for 2 hours

Reptile Information Talk - General Info about reptiles and then catered to the age of the children. Includes a portion of the show about natives.

Reptile Meet and Greet - Chance for the party goers to touch and interact with the reptiles as well as reptile theme games and crafts.

Same as the basic party with additions.

Choice of Reptile Activity with a take home piece for each child or reptile gift for each child up to 20 children. ($2 for each additional child.)

Extra Time - We can stay longer after any show. Extra time can be spent doing "open house" (extra turns visiting with the animals), photo ops, or even dividing into smaller shows for large groups). We can do anything you'd like within the time. It's $50 for an extra half hour, and $75 for each additional hour. For shows over 4 hours, we offer flat rate discounts. The extra time can be added the day of the party as long as we don't have a prior conflict. Any additional time booked after the party is all Open House and everyone can play with their favorites as long as they like.

Deposit - A $50 deposit is required to book a party. The deposit is non-refundable. If a party must be cancelled due to weather we can hold deposit for a future booking. PayPal is accepted for deposits.

Cancellation - If a cancellation notice is not given at least 24 hours before the event, no deposit will be refunded.

Payment (Private Events) - Cash or Credit Card payment is due prior to the party start. By using our services, the client agrees to these terms.

Shade/Heat - Especially in the summer, animals can overheat (and kids do, too); we always need a comfortable shady spot. We can also locate indoors. If it's over 100 degrees our animals will need to be kept in A/C and can be taken outside just during their part of the show. If the temp is below 65 we must be indoors.

Location/Travel - We can do the encounter at a place of your choosing. However, it is the responsibility of the person planning the party to verily that live reptiles are allowed at the location. It is always a god idea to check the City Animal Ordinances as well. Travel within 25 miles of 77449 is FREE. Travel up to 50 miles is $25, Travel up to 70 miles is $40, Travel excess of 70 miles, call for quote.

Handling an animal at event comes with inherent risks. The handling of any of our animals constitutes an agreement to hold us harmless in the event of a bite.

These are not all of the animals available, but definitely the most popular!
