snakes alive was set up in 1996 by Glenn Cousins who run and grew the business until we took over in 2011. Snakes alive was one of first companies offering interactive children's parties with a variety of reptiles. We continue to provide a unique and captivating addition to deadly 60 dinosaurs or Jungle parties, live reptile displays or outside events at museums, fetes and corporate functions, educational talks with live reptiles and science shows at schools, nurseries, pre-schools and youth groups (such as brownies, guides, cubs and scouts).

Our reptile encounters are presented by reptile keepers with over 30 years of experience in exotic animal care. We are sensitive to the needs of our audience and presentations are adjusted to ensure that even the most nervous participants feel comfortable and are given the opportunity to encounter some fascinating species in their own time without pressure. We can provide our fun mobile petting zoo experience for 2 years and upwards. This hands-on experience will leave lasting memories and enjoyment for all.

snakes alive has now opened its own reptile house in Barleylands Farm Park which is open to the public 7 days a week throughout the year. Although snakes alive does not receive any of the entry money from people visiting Barleylands Farm Park. We have a good business relationship which works well for the both of us. Being based at Barleylands means we can offer experience days, keeper days, photography sessions and much more.
