Frequently Asked Questions


How much space do I need for a party?

About 10 x 10 square feet.
Roughly the average size of a Family or Living room.


Do I need to provide anything for the party, e.g. tables?

No, we bring everything we need to perform the show.


Can I have the party outside?

As long as the temperature is above 60 degrees.


How much time do you need to setup?

Set up takes hardly no time.

We arrive shortly before your scheduled time and the kids will start buzzing with excitement the moment we pull up.


How much notice do you need for a party?

We book up quickly, especially on weekends, so please try to book your party as early as possible. Parents typically book Birthday Parties 3 to 4 weeks in advanced.


How will I know if my event is booked?

We take the stress out of party planning. We keep you informed (and worry-free) from start to finish!

You will receive a confirmation email the same day you book online. In addition, we will send you email and text reminders before the event, to give you the peace of mind of knowing your event is under control.


When do I start the party?

Moms typically play games and have cake with the kids for the first hour of the party and book My Reptile Guys to come for the second half when all guests are surely present.


Are the reptiles friendly?

Yes, our reptiles are healthy, docile animals accustomed to being around children and we do not own any dangerous or venomous animals.

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.

What is the best age group for a reptile party?

Children 4 to 11 are our most popular ages.

All shows are age-appropriate - We always adjust any show to fit the age group and need of the children.

Please note even our premium package, the Grand Safari, will hold 4 year old's attention, since the animals get bigger and more exciting as the show goes on.


Are reptile parties just for boys?

No, in fact, girls are very brave and typically want to hold and touch the animals longer than boys! --- Roughly 40% of our parties are for girls!
