Live Reptile Shows for Schools

Reptiles Alive captures the attention and imagination of students while introducing important environmental and biological subjects, including Virgina’s Standards of Learning and Maryland’s Common Core State Standards. We offer live animal shows for large groups, perfect for school assemblies, family nights, school fairs, and other large events. We offer live animal shows for small groups (up to 25 students) for the classroom. We also offer live animal shows for after school enrichment programs.

Have a live animal show idea that doesn’t really fit one of our three show types? Please contact us and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs for your next school assembly.
