We Are 



We cater for children's birthday parties from as young as two and have no upper age limit as to whom can enjoy our reptile parties. 


Whether it is a community summer fete or a large annual festival we are able to provide an interesting display of animals to entertain visitors.  


From the Early Years up to college level we bring the excitement to you with a range of bespoke options to fit in with your curriculum or theme. 


In a media driven world our animals provide interesting content in front of a lens or at corporate events.


As an alternative to a traditional party we can bring bespoke animal experiences to you.

Groups and clubs

Uniformed groups (such as Scouts and Brownies), after school clubs, Women's Institute are just some of the people we meet. 

Animal Assisted therapy

From helping with phobias and improving confidence to visiting hospitals and hospices, find out more about what our animals do here.


Due to popular demand (well until Covid-19 ruined people's holiday plans) we are reintroducing our Reptile Boarding in 2020! 

We have reintroduced our Reptile and Amphibian Adoptions; the perfect alternative to owning the real thing.
