We provide a number of different programs, which can be tailored to your individual needs and outcomes.
In consultation with Jodie you can request which animals you would like for your booking, along with the finer details of how our programs work.
Please note – As we have live animals sometimes your request may not be able to be met due to circumstances out of our control
Australia is home to some of the most fascinating and unique animals in the world. We have Mammals, Amphibians, Birds and Reptiles, which we can bring along to fit into any program or wildlife show.
A min of 5 animals within this program can be requested – speak to Jodie about what animals are currently available.
|Sugar Glider I’m a marsupial mammal who is nocturnal. I love to play high up in the trees looking for insects, flowers and fruit to eat. I have extra skin which I can use like a parachute and can glide up to 50 metres if I am really high up. Did you know I also help trees to grow by using my whiskers to help with pollination?|
|Carpet PythonI have scaly skin, I’m cold blooded and I belong to the reptile family. I am a python which means I constrict my prey and I do not have fangs like a venomous snake. Together we will learn more about what I use my tongue for, how I eat my prey and where I am found?|
|Bearded DragonsI have a special way of protecting myself so predators don’t eat me, can you guess how? I am also a reptile and designed for life in the drier parts of Australia. I love to eat insects and certain flowers and can run fast. Want to know what I use my tail for?|
|Green Tree FrogsDid you know frogs have two lives? This is what an amphibian means. Want to know if it’s the male or female Green Tree Frog that croaks in your garden? What about a special action I have to do when I’m trying to eat my insects, do you know what that is?|
|CrocodilesEver wondered how I can catch my food and not drown from water going down my throat? What about my scutes and osteoderms and how they help me swim underwater without being seen! Did you know I am very important for the health of the rivers and I am considered an Apex Predator.|
|Papuan FrogmouthI am a nocturnal, sleeping during the day, camouflaging in with the tree branches. At night I wake to catch my prey. Some people think I am an Owl but I am not! Owls catch their food with their feet, I catch my food with my beak.|
|Black Headed PythonI have an amazing black head and patterns on my body, which help me blend in with my environment. I am a python and constrict my prey. Did you know I am designed to eat other reptiles including venomous snakes. When I grow I must do something with my skin, do you know what that is?|
|Blue Tongue LizardMy favourite meal to eat is snails and I love to sun bake to warm my body up. I am designed to blend in with my environment and I have a special way to scare predators away from me so I don’t get eaten. Do you know what that is?|
|TurtlesI live in freshwater and have a short neck but my friend Leonardo has a long neck. We have shells to protect ourselves but have you ever wondered what our shell is made of? I also have a secret on how I can stay underwater for a long time which allows me to protect myself from predators like a bird who is waiting for me to come up and take a breath of air. Do you know what this secret is?|
Insects, Minibeasts & Creepy Crawlies
Insects are found everywhere and are important to life on earth. They feed on animals and animals feed on them. They are responsible for pollinating our plants and trees as well as creating habitats and ecosystems.
Insects are AMAZING!
Have you ever wondered why it takes up to 2 years for some stick insects eggs to hatch? What does a burrowing cockroach eat? What is the life cycle of a butterfly and what really happens inside that cocoon?
We bring along all our insects within this program PLUS animals that eat insects. As insects play an important role within our environment it is important to also bring along some animals that rely on insects for food. This may be a Crocodile, Frog, Bearded dragon and a Sugar glider.
Your insect friends include a Burrowing cockroach, Millipede, Stick insects, Crickets, Spider and Scorpion.
Marine – Under the Sea Creatures
Ever wanted the Great Barrier Reef to come to you? We bring along a range of Sea Stars, Sea Cucumbers, Sea Urchins, Crabs, Snails and even a BABY SHARK. Just to top it off with the underwater theme, you may even see one of our freshwater turtles and a Saltwater Crocodile.
Have you ever wondered how a sea star eats? How does a sea snails shell grow? Does their shell grow with them or do they find a new one like hermit crabs? Do all sharks have to swim all the time and do they all give birth to live babies? Did you know the shark we bring along lays eggs.
