Add an Animal Greeter to your party: $75 (approximately 20-minute encounter)  While you can’t choose a specific animal to see during the encounter, you can most certainly choose any animals you would not like to see should there be any fears.  The animal presented may include anything from this list: frog, salamander, gecko, python, tortoise, bearded dragon, box turtle, rabbit, tenrec, whip scorpion, rose-haired tarantula, and/or giant African millipedes.

The animal greeter is presented by one of our very knowledgeable educators who will engage the children with fun facts and can answer any questions.  For health and safety concerns, there is no touching of the animals allowed by the children.
