PARTIES / DISPLAYS

Having our traveling wildlife show at your party, event or display is an ideal way to teach children and adults about the animal kingdom.

Birthdays, Schools and Scouts

We offer an entertaining and educational wildlife show for children's and family events. This show is great for birthday parties, school classrooms, day care centers, club events, and boy and girl scout gatherings.

The show includes about 13 different animals in a 45-50 minute program. The animals are usually the following: scorpion, toad, tortoise, turtle, alligator (or monitor or tegu), legless lizard, snake, bird of prey or parrot, and 4-5 mammals from the following: bearcat, skunk, opossum, fox, porcupine, kinkajou, groundhog, jackal, monkey and a cat (leopard, jaguar, lion, tiger or cougar - additional fee for cat). The show is designed for ages four and up; this is an estimate based on the fact that an understanding of the dialog is required. The show is fast-paced and tends to hold everyone's attention.

We have 85 animals, so if you've had us before, we can always do a different show by switching animals.

Local Festivals, Corporate Events and Picnics

Our show can also be designed for more of a mixed age group including things for the adults as well as the kids. This type of show is great for library and church groups, company picnics, small festivals, retirement communities, and other community organizations.

What is the show like?
There is a lot of emphasis placed on educational messages such as: the importance of all animals, dispelling many of the misunderstandings behind certain animals, the fact that wild animals do not make good pets, how to interact or not interact with wildlife and much more. The dialogue is adjusted to meet the age group. The show is very fun, with volunteers helping with certain animals and many jokes built in. Birthday parties involve the birthday person as well, if he/she is a willing participant.

How do I book a show?
No deposit is required, so if you know the date of your event and the time you want to start your show, call so we can check availability. It is never too early to get your time and date secured. (Birthday parties...please do not schedule our show at the beginning of your party to account for people running late). If your desired time and date are open, we will take down all the information we need. You will be confirmed at that point, and you will make payment at the conclusion of the event either by check or cash. Checks should be payable to: Wild World of Animals.

How much space is required?
The show can be performed just about anywhere during anytime of the year. The animals take up an area roughly 8' by 4'. We like to have a 12' buffer zone between the audience and the animals. If it is a particularly large group, this might need to be bigger. In the hotter months (75F and warmer) the animals will need to be in some type of shade. In the winter months (50F and colder), the show will need to be in a temperature-controlled environment. The show can be done inside your home, as well as in a basement or heated garage. Stairs are difficult...so the less, the better.

When can shows be performed?
We can perform our shows 365 days a year, seven days a week, day or night.

Is the show safe?
Sometimes people hear of the types of animals that we bring and wonder if it safe for kids. We take great care to ensure that nothing will happen. These are wild animals, and we want everyone to understand that they are not pets or Disney characters. There are rules that are given before the start of a show, and they are strictly adhered to. If the trainer feels the children are not cooperating or are out of control, he will not take the animals out. Each animal is taken out and is under the direct control of the trainer; the only exception is the leopard. He or she is in a steel, locked cage (as per PA law) and cannot come out. In addition when people hear alligator or crocodile they are imagining full- grown animals. This is not the case; the animals we bring will be roughly 2' in length. We do ask that teachers or parents assist in the control of the children, so that the trainer can perform the show safely. When we show up at the event, we do not want the children in the area where we will be performing until we are set up and ready.

What animals will be coming?
We will make every effort to ensure that the animals that we say are coming come to your event. Working with these types of animals, sometimes things come up that we are not able to control: sickness, pregnancy or just plain having a bad day. In these situations, we apologize but certain things will be out of our control.

How much does it cost?
If you are in the Pittsburgh area, the show costs $400.00  for a show without a cat and $425 for a full show. Additional costs involved with travel outside of the Pittsburgh area (beyond one hour of drive time).

We don't want to be late to your show:
Unfortunately at times we encounter traffic problems, construction delays, weather or problems with an animal. We understand that people are expecting us at a certain time, and we will make every effort to be there at that time. We account for possible problems, but even with these precautions, at times, things are out of our control. Please make sure to supply us with a phone number that WILL ABSOLUTELY reach someone on the day of your event. Giving us a number that only reaches a message system does not help when we are lost and desperately trying to reach you.
