Exclusively High School Assembly NJ...

Jan 30, 2017 by


Exclusively High School Assembly NJ The perfect show for high school students, our high school assembly NJ includes large animals, exciting species not generally seen without interposing glass and an intelligent experienced instructor that knows how to talk to teens. The major problem with a high school assembly involving animals is the instructors speak as though they were addressing a preschool class! and do not have the background to deal topics of conservation, genetics, careers, animal reproduction, ecology, husbandry and other topics that are relevant to the teenage audience. Our High School Great Reptiles Program solves this problem, starting with  7ft, 100  lb American Alligator, we get their attention extremely quickly! The show proceeds through a 30 lb snapping turtle, a 6 ft water monitor lizard and a 10-13 ft Burmese Python. The show can include other...

Snakes-N-Scales’ 20th Year Anniversary!...

Mar 20, 2016 by


Since 1996 Snakes-N-Scales has been creating delight and preventing suffering. The delight of children in 4 states and the prevention of suffering to mostly reptiles but also the odd tarantula and frog. They began with a mere 35 animals and now have over 325. They did about 20 shows that first year and by Snakes-N-Scales’ 20th, now perform between 1300-1500 per year. There were others that did similar programs but Bill, the founder of Snakes-N-Scales, always found other performers either actually scaring the kids with the animals, abusing the animals or having no educational value whatsoever! He made it his mission to alter that! And he has. At Snakes-N-Scales’ 20th, they have been sought out by dozens of animal education and rescue groups including most of the zoos in NJ, including the Turtleback Zoo, Bergen County Zoo, Trailside...

NJ Libraries Summer Reading Program...

Jan 25, 2016 by


In support of the library summer reading program 2017 of “Build a Better World” We present Building A Better World-Rescuing Reptiles!   Since 1996 Snakes-N-Scales has been rescuing reptiles from all sorts of places and using them to teach people about these amazing animals. We have pulled alligators out of people’s pools, (in NJ!) and had them brought to us having been hit by cars. We have taken in frostbitten lizards, snakes abandoned in parking lots and in the garbage, hatched dug up turtle eggs, various animals running down streets, even the Turnpike! and appearing suddenly in people’s homes who didn’t own them. And, of course, from pet owners disappointed, or unable to cope, with their reptile pet. We are a unique organization, (if we do say so ourselves!) in that our expertise allows us to...

Skulls Horns and Teeth Science School Assembly...

Dec 6, 2015 by


The Skulls Horns and Teeth Science School Assembly brings in a wide assortment of skulls for a visually stimulating discussion of what this set of bones is used for throughout the vertebrate kingdom. All studies of skeletons seem to inevitably center on the skull, as it is the most crucial area of anatomy. Nearly all vertebrates have most of their senses here, most vertebrates use their teeth to both catch and process their food and of course the brain is here. The skull is developed to many variations to do essentially the same jobs for all animals; bring the information from the senses close to the brain to facilitate speed in responding, catch, and if necessary kill the food animal and once in a while for defense, display or settling disputes. Skulls Horns and Teeth...
