Choose from four themed options, 1) THE UNHUGGABLES - our most popular live animal show, helps kids overcome their fears through facts. 2) AMAZING ADAPTATIONS - animals ingeniously survive through structural and behavioral adaptations! 3) COOL, COLD-BLOODED CRITTERS - we are all about reptiles! 4) TAILS and TALES - Students ask ‘Whose TAIL is it?’ and have fun with TALL TALES told throughout their adventure. Children learn best when they are intrigued, challenged, involved, and entertained. Featured critters: cornsnake, kingsnake or bullsnake, tarantula, African spurred or Texas tortoise, blue-tongued skink, bearded dragon, or savannah monitor lizard, legless lizard, tenrec, sugar glider, or Virginia opossum, even alligator or caiman when available, and a large boa constrictor or Burmese python! Special emphasis is placed on Conservation and Reading Literacy as students learn the Geography, Scientific Terminology, and Natural History of each animal. As a special bonus, everyone receives a WILD give-a-way surprise, and they each have the opportunity to touch and interact with the last animal presented! *** Animal ambassadors also help promote other school themes. Ask about Bullying Prevention, Personal Choices, and Cultural Differences.
