Frequently Asked Questions

How many children do you cater for?


Our packages cater for a maximum of 15 people. We charge £10.00 per extra person attending all of our parties. We like to keep numbers to a minimum as to not stress our animals as their welfare is our main priority. We advice that any parents that are staying to be in a different room as most of the time they cause most of the noise!




How many/what animals do you bring for an 'Experience Package'?


We aim to bring around 14 animals with us for all one hour talks/parties. This adds a huge variety for children and adults to learn about and handle/touch or look at. These will generally consist of the following: - millipede - cockroach - scorpion - 2 tarantulas - 2 lizards - 2 snakes - 2 tortoises - hedgehog - ferret - rabbit

We understand that some people prefer certain animals, so you can request the showing of a specific animal we have that is not on the list from our ‘Our Animals’ page.

However, due to the nature of our business we cannot guarantee that the animal will be able to attend your event. Our main priority is our animals health and welfare, their safety is our utmost importance to us. Because our animals come first, if we do not feel that a certain animal is fit for travelling/handling on that day then we regrettably will not be able to bring them with us. This protects the safety and welfare of both the animal and guests attending our shows.

If either an animal from the list above or one you have requested cannot attend then we will do our best to replace it with a similar animal. We hope you understand.




How many/what animals do you bring for a 'Minis Package'?

How many handlers will attened of event?


A minimum of 2 handlers will be attending your event.




Can I have my party outside?


This depends on the weather and the handlers judgement. If we feel it is warm enough for the exotics and there is enough shade then we will be able to work outside, However, do not fully rely on the British weather! It can change at any minute so please have some backup space available inside for us to work or we will not be able to attend your event.




Can I have my party at home?


Yes of course! As long as you don't mind 15 kids and 14 exotic animals in your home then feel free. We do however strongly advise booking halls for you event.




How much space do you need?


We can accommodate most spaces, our table is 6ft, all animals will fit on or under the table. There just needs to be enough space for the children to sit in a semi-circle. For parties, we do recommend hiring a hall as we have a lot of equipment which can take up a lot of space. Halls also allow children enough room to run around and dance.




Do you explain how to hold and stroke your animals?


At the beginning we will go through a couple of important rules, these include how we handle our animals. We will also remind you how to handle each animal before bringing them around.




Can the children eat or drink while the animals are out?


We would advise not to consume any food or drink during the animals to reduce the chances of becoming sick.




How long in advance should I make a booking with you?


We would advise you to book at least 6 months in advance to avoid disappointment. We sometimes get cancellations so if you have a last minute booking please contact us to see if we have availability for you.




What age groups are your sessions appropriate for?


We cater for children 1 plus! Yes even the adults! Each party package on our 'Parties Page' will explain which age group it is appropriate for.




Can my pets be at home during the party?


Of course! As long as they are in a separate room during our session.




What time will you arrive?


We will always aim to arrive 30 minutes prior to your booking time for all parties in order to set up. We aim to arrive 1-2 hours prior to your Gold Package booking time in order to decorate your venue in time.




Do I need to cater for your parking requirements?


Yes, we need to be able to park within a close proximity to your venue. Any payment meter charges or fines must be paid by the client. If parking is not available for us on the day then we will not be able to continue your booking with us.




Are your animals friendly/do they bite?


Most of our animals are very use to being handled and are very docile. Those that aren't are not handled or touched, only shown for educational purposes such as the scorpion.




Will the children be able to hold and stroke everything?


The children will be able to handle and touch most of our animals, however we do save some animals for only the birthday child to hold. In cases where there are more than 15 people attending, everyone may not be able to hold and touch everything as we have a lot of animals to go through, but we do make sure that the birthday child gets to hold and touch everything they can regardless of the amount of people attending.
