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, e.g. tables?

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


How much time do you need to setup?

Set up takes hardly no time. --- We arrive shortly before your scheduled time, bring in the travel crates and the show should start right away. The kids will start buzzing with excitement the moment we pull up.


Can I have the party outside?

If the outside temperature is above 90 degrees, the event should be held inside, as direct sun and extreme heat are harmful to the reptiles and very uncomfortable for the kids. — We only need a 10' x 10' area to perform the show inside.

Only if the weather is 60 degrees or higher!


Can I have a party at a park?

Please check with the park authorities before you do anything.

Most public parks and pavilions do not allow "exotic" animals, like reptiles on their premises. Some playground facilities demand special liability insurance or exhibit permits, which we do not have.


What is the petting zoo?

The petting zoo is an activity towards the end of the show, where the children can touch, pet and pose for pictures with the animals


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.


Can I reschedule my event in case of rain?

You can reschedule your event at any time. Simply browse our calendar for a new suitable date/time. Then, send us an email with the new date/time and we will gladly reschedule your event.


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 minute you book online. In addition, we will send you multiple email and text reminders before your appointment date 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 snacks 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 -- 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.
