Your 21-animal experience will be customized for your needs, regulations, and comfort level.
YOUR OPTIONS ARE:
1) No contact, viewing only (lasts 45 to 60 minutes), social distancing from presenter of six feet. Best for small family, neighborhood groups, camp, homeschool. Very few have used this method.
2) Limited contact with gentle petting of a few animals, each animal will be pet by one child. Again, very few have used this method.
3) Birthday (or volunteer) chair with animals on a towel on lap for petting. Guests may perch frogs on arms or hats, pet a bearded dragon and tortoise, wear snakes around shoulders, includes The Dare Chair, and more. Prices below. This is the most popular and typical format.
Within a 25 minutes' drive, the cost is $175.
Between a 26 and 50 minutes' drive, the cost is $200.
Farther than 50 minutes (up to 60 minutes), the cost is $225.
The fee asked reserves the time slot for you. Please reserve with an intentional commitment. The cost is not just for the presentation and time at your event. The fee enables my daily maintenance, supervision, and upkeep of the animals; including heating, feeding, cleaning and transfers to basking when possible. Your presentation of 45 to 90 minutes requires preparation time of soaking and cleaning, packing, loading, travel, unloading, set up, the presentation, reloading, travel, unloading, cleaning, laundry. The average time spent for one event is 5 to 7 hours. Every step of this process is done by myself.
Duration of presentation depends on various factors of questions asked, photos taken, number of guests and those participating. Price is not based on time, it is based per presentation and location. Every party is allotted 90 minutes, just in case. Please allow at least an hour. Time travel is based from Mandarin Dr., Oceanside, 92056.
All travel time factors are considered, such as: work commute traffic, tourist season, sunny coastal days, other events (races, fair, air show), Friday traffic, holidays, and foul weather-mainly rain.
Every one-hour event has 21 animals present. When more bugs are available, I bring them.
NOT JUST FOR BIRTHDAYS.
