I booked Bob for my daughters 9th birthday party at home. I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the knowledge that was imparted to all of the children and even the adults during his program. He talked about each animal as he brought them out, allowing each child (who was comfortable) to hold the animal whether they were snakes, spiders, scorpions, turtles or birds. the kids LOVED every minute that he was there. Highest recommendation.
Response from Critter Connections:
Thanks Nikki for your positive comments. We are very glad that your daughter and her friends enjoyed Bob and his reptile and bird. Your experience is similar to everyone who has Bob or me share our animals with you. We are pleased to be in our 10th year providing fun and educational reptile and bird programs for birthdays, child care centers, fairs, scouts, schools and other venues. Please contact us at 717-487-0032 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to schedule another program.
Mike Buleza, manager Bob's Critters.
Bob was very kind and impressive with his knowledge of not just the animals but of how the children and adults would react. We booked Bob a couple years ago for our daughters 7th birthday and he was wonderful!!! If I could give him more stars I would!!
Thank you for visiting our school last month. Turtles, snakes, birds, lizards, insects, and more. Big hit with my teachers and parents. Let's do it again next year :)
What to Expect
In our formal programs (birthdays, child care centers, scouting programs, etc.) our presenters share their animals, one at a time, explaining each animal's physical traits, defense mechanisms, diet and proper care. We invite our audience to touch or hold each animal, and assist our them in overcoming any fears or apprehensions they may have. We answer questions and encourage our audience to share their own experiences with animals.
In our informal programs (fairs, community day celebrations, etc.) we set up a table with our animals on display. Our guests may enjoy observing and holding our animals, asking questions, and may come and go as they please.
Our manager, Mike, will tailor your reptile program to your occasion, the ages and number of participants, location and budget. When you contact Mike by email or phone, he will discuss your options with you, obtain directions, a contact phone number and any other information needed. You may pay in cash or by check that day or you may send in your payment before the program.
Although we do not sell animals, we will direct people who are interested in acquiring an animal to suitable places to purchase them.
Our programs are educational, informative and, most importantly, a fun experience for everyone! We guarantee a memorable experience for all!
Our presenters are experienced educators and skilled animal presenters. They will be happy to offer a very exciting program for you with their animals. All of our programs are guaranteed to meet your satisfaction.
Our animals are captive born and very tame. They can be safely touched and held by adults and children of all ages.
Please contact us to learn more about us, schedule a program or ask a question . Mike, our manager, will be happy to assist you.
Additional Booking Notes
Our presenters will share our animals either indoors or outdoors (weather permitting). All we need is a table to set our boxes on, a cover or shade for our animals and guests, and a heated space in cold weather. In our formal programs, we prefer to present to audiences of 40 or less to allow for more touching time with our animals, but we will present to larger groups as well.
Our presenters will bring a variety of animals to your event, including rabbits, guinea pigs, corn snakes, milk snakes, king snakes, ball pythons, red tailed boas, leopard geckos, fat tail geckos, crested geckos, blue tongue skinks, Schneider skinks, bearded dragons, plated lizards, Uromastyx lizards, crested geckos, red-footed tortoises, Russian tortoises, tarantulas, hissing cockroaches and scorpions. The exact animals are subject to availability, but we guarantee a full compliment of animals we know you will enjoy.
