March 24th, 2020 | Comments Off on We are moving our shows online!! | Posted in Scales And Tails

Covid -19 look out! Scales and Tails will now be available for performing online shows for anyone who would like them.

We will still have our standard reptile show offerings, but we will also be adding in a mini reptile or bird show that will be great as a reward for doing school work or chores, or just to give the caretakers a minute to breath. Check out our current show package offerings: Shows & Pricing

Requirements: Clients will need a laptop, smart phone, tablet, or desktop with camera/video capabilities. You will need access to the internet and will be asked to download a small application called Zoom prior to the call of you don’t already have it.

Downside: You won’t be able to pet the reptiles.

Upside: It will still be interactive and we can give you a copy of the show after it’s over.

Personal attention right through your laptop!

Tuesday’s we will be open to the public like usual, however we will be putting a little more focus on helping out the scouts. Whether you are a girl scout, boy scout, cub scout, or an adult scout, wear your uniform to the facility and save a $1 off of admission.

We are currently in the process of getting a few of our entertainers certified as Merit Badge Councilors so that we can pass off any scouts who are working on a Reptile/Amphibian merit badge as well. Once we are certified, we will put out a product that should enable scouts to accomplish the goals of the badge for a minimal fee.

Just a reminder, there are no appointments required for coming to our public hours. Just bring you, your camera, and all of your friends and family!
