What animals will you bring?

We bring a variety of animals to our presentations such as cockroaches, tarantulas, lizards, snakes and rats. Depending on the package you choose, we can provide between 5 – 7 animals for parties. For events and fairs/fetes we can provide much more.

Animal welfare is paramount, if any of our animals are unable to attend we will try and source a stand in. We hope you understand that we do not want to stress any of our animals out or risk illness or injury. If any of the animals that you wanted to see are unable to attend, we will inform you immediately and try to provide a suitable stand in. please note that this is not always possible.

Are any of your animals dangerous?

Not at all! The great thing about many bugs is that they are harmless. Our Tarantulas do possess a very mild venom, but if we were worried about them, we wouldn’t use them in our shows. The spiders are kept in secure enclosures, so nobody is able to get bitten. The snakes are very docile and used to handling so are very reluctant to bite.

We supervise the animals at all times and always ask that the children remain calm around the animals.

I'm scared of spiders. Do you have to bring them?

If you do not want a spider at your event, then we won’t bring one, but I should emphasise that our aim is to educate people on even the scary looking animals, and show everybody that our eight legged friends are beautiful fascinating animals that are not to be feared but instead, respected.

When we bring tarantulas, we will announce this in the presentation before we bring them out. This will give anybody with a phobia the chance to distance themselves from the presentation until we move on to the next animal.

Does everybody have to join in?

Please don’t feel like you have to take part. Although we encourage everybody to join in, we do understand that some people can feel uncomfortable around unusual exotic animals. But be rest assured that all of our animals are safe, well-handled and not dangerous. We want to educate everybody about the wonders of these amazing creatures.
