Questions & Answers

Frequently asked questions...

* Are your shows done inside or outside?
Our presentations can be done indoors or outdoors.  Outdoor shows are done so at our discretion depending on the weather - typically, the temperature would need to be at least 70 degrees.  We will not put our critters at risk if the weather is too hot or too cold.
* How many animals do you bring?
We generally bring about a dozen animals. 
* How long does the show last?
Our educational presentation lasts 45 minutes to an hour.
* Are the kids allowed to touch the animals?
Yes.  All of our critters are used to participating in our presentations, and are well socialized.
* What age groups are your shows appropriate for?
We adapt our presentation to the general age of the group.  We've done shows for both ends of the age spectrum....from toddlers to senior citizens.
* Can I take pictures during the show?
Yes, pictures don't bother the critters at all.  We also encourage you to email us some pictures for possible use on our website.
* Is there a limit to the number of people we can invite?
While we do not put a limit on the size of the groups we will do presentations for, it is important to realize that the larger the group is, the less hands on there will be with the critters. Additional charges will apply for groups larger than 25 kids. 
Birthday parties are best if limited to 15 to 20 kids or less. 
Daycares are best if limited to no more than 25 kids per show.  We offer substantial discounts for multiple shows as long as they are done back to back.
Scouting Events or Corporate Picnics are best set up as displays.
Please keep in mind that these are only suggestions.  We're here to work with you  - whatever your needs are.
* How far in advance do we need to book a show?
All dates are reserved on a first come, first serve basis.  The sooner you reserve your date, the less you will have to worry about later!
* How do I reserve a date?
Give us all the pertinent information and we will send you a contract.   Once you receive the contract, we ask that you sign it and return it with a $50.00 deposit.  However, if your event is reserved less than 2 weeks in advance, we do require a 50% deposit.  Once we receive this, you'll be all set - it's that easy!
* Do you accept credit card payments?
No, we do not accept credit cards.  Payment may be in the form of a personal check, company check, money order or cash.
* Do you have any special requirements for setting up?
It tends to work out the best if there is an area where the kids can sit in a "U" shape so all the kids will have an opportunity to see and touch the critters.
* Do you have any special parking requirements?
We do require driveway parking unless prior arrangements have been made.
