Let us bring our animal ambassadors to your next Orlando birthday party. A reptile party is unique, fun, and exciting! Our entertaining staff includes an alligator, lizards, tree frogs, creepy bugs, and slithering snakes. (We also bring along some knowledgeable humans!) Everyone learns about the animals while interacting with them. Of course there is plenty of time for photo opportunities as well.
How much does it cost for a Zoo Mom Science party presentation?
Our party presentations are $200 for a 45 minute presentation and 15 minutes of photos. We bring 7-9 animals depending on the age of the party guests and the types of animals in attendance. For younger children we offer a special presentation at a cost of $150 for 30 minutes of seated time and 10 minutes of photos. Travel beyond 30 miles from our Sanford location requires a mileage fee.

How much does it cost for Zoo Mom Science to come to my school, summer camp, VBS, scout meeting, library, corporate event, etc?
We can adjust our presentations to suit a variety of needs and venues. We can present to a small crowd or a large assembly in presentation style or with an exotic animal learning center. We also host dissection workshops! Our fees for educational presentations are $150 for the first hour and $100 for each hour thereafter.
Are you licensed and insured?
We have all business licenses in place as well as Class II, Class III, and Conditional Species permits from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. We carry general liability insurance to meet the requirements of schools, corporations, and parks.
Is it safe to have children interact with the animals?
We take all necessary precautions to ensure that all people and animals are safe. Our animals are handled regularly and are selected for their disposition. Any animal that is a risk is not handled by children. Party guests are also given a brief introduction to “animal manners” so that everyone has a fantastic time! We bring along hand cleaner, but insist that proper hand washing with soap and running water be observed as well. Party hosts and parents can be of great assistance by having the children stay calm during the presentation. Of course we want everyone to have fun at a party, however if guests are not able to follow directions then interaction with live animals will be limited for everyone’s safety.
What is the best time to have the presentation?
I have found that the most popular time for our presentation is 30 minutes after the party is scheduled to begin. This gives the guests plenty of time to arrive and allows for games and cake afterwards.
What is the best place for a presentation?
We have held our presentations in community clubhouses, living rooms, backyards, driveways, and park pavilions. An important consideration is the weather. Because our animals are cold-blooded they cannot regulate their own body temperatures and are sensitive to environmental conditions. We prefer not to have the animals outside if the temperatures are below 60 or over 90. They are also sensitive to large spaces that carry loud noises. The comfort of the guests is not to be forgotten. Children may become itchy if seated on grass or distracted if seated next to a bounce house. Blankets and towels can be used for children to sit upon.
