ABOUT THE REPTILES
We do not own any dangerous or venomous animals. Our animals are chosen based on their docile nature and safety factor. My Reptile Guys have performed over 3,000 fun and safe shows. All of the animals are child-friendly for the kids to experience up close.

Many of our reptiles are rescued animals that we adopted and house in a special climate-controlled facility where they are pampered and fed very much like our pets.
