Reptile Shows of New England bring the exotic world of reptiles from back yards all around the world to life in a safe and engaging environment. Whether it’s a show for an organization, classroom or a specific group, our educational shows are both informative AND entertaining.
We invite audience members to get up close and personal with snakes and other creatures that are often misunderstood. We do a Q & A and hands on interaction throughout the show where you’ll learn surprising facts, as well as answers to your most common questions. If you’ve always been curious about these creatures, here is the perfect way to get to know them better.
Close encounters with reptiles
Our educational shows provide more time for questions and answers, and there’s also more hands-on, interactive experiences that let everyone get as close as they dare to these amazing animals. There may even be an opportunity to feed a tortoise, or a crested gecko so you can watch them eat. (We don’t, however, feed the snakes during shows because we don’t want to evoke a feeding response in them.)
Our educational summer events focus on conservation, safe exploration and other topics relating to the careful balance between humans and nature. Understanding the dangers faced by reptiles in our modern world is so important, as well as learning what you can do to ensure your own safety when you encounter one of these creatures in the wild. These educational shows are also entertaining and informative for all ages.
We bring educational items with us such as the shed skin from different snakes and lizards as well as the shed spikes from a large male iguana! We also bring an empty turtle shell, and we explain the difference between a tortoise and a turtle.
Experience the unknown
Fear comes from the unknown but healthy respect for these amazing reptiles will bring you closer to the appreciation that comes with education.
NOTE: Our shows are fully insured. We do not feature any venomous snakes.
