Educational events are $100 for the first 30 minutes and $50 for each additional 30 minutes. Depending on the length of your event and which animals you choose to include in your event package, each animal will be presented individually along with a brief description of their natural history and fun facts, as well as time allowed for questions, petting the animals, and taking pictures with them if desired.

Petting Zoo events are $100 per handler required for each 30 minute period. (We require one handler per three smaller animals. Larger animals such as alligators or snakes exceeding 10 feet each require an individual handler.) Booking our Petting Zoo allows participants to come and go as they please, touch the animals, learn about the animals on a person-to-person basis, and ask questions about each one. All animals selected will be available for the entire duration of the event for petting or photos.
