Outstanding. Danny from Zoo Jersey is a phenomenal presenter--the kids loved the show! Danny came on short notice and did a wonderful job. He seemed to love the kids and the feeling was mutual.

Thank you very much for these wonderful words, they mean more than you realize.

Perfect for my sons birthday
Response from Zoo Jersey:
Thank you for having us! It was such a pleasure.
Thanks for choosing Zoo Jersey!
Danny was a big hit! I had him for my son’s 8 year old birthday party. He was very engaging and entertaining with all the children as well as for the parents! I would highly recommend him, He had the complete undivided attention of 8 year old boys for almost an hour - impressive! Also he was on-time, professional, and easy to communicate with in the days leading up to the event. Also the animals were a great variety and all looked healthy and well-taken care of. It’s clearly a passion for him and it comes across. A pleasure to have him at our event!
Response from Zoo Jersey:
Thank you so much for choosing Zoo Jersey, I had such a great time at your party and I love how brave the birthday boy was! Please don’t hisitate to ask if Zoo Jersey can ever be of service again!
Zoo jersey did an excellent job of keeping our crowd of mixed ages engaged and entertained! Danny, the presenter, was roll on the floor laughing hilarious! I would recommend this show to groups of any size and any age! My only regret is that I did not book the show for a longer period of time. I didnt want it to end!
