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...

Anti-Bullying School Assemblies...

Mar 19, 2014 by


Through Another’s Eyes Snakes-N-Scales’ Anti-Bullying School Assemblies look at the subject from an entirely different direction than any other program, using animals that are often misunderstood and feared, like snakes, spiders and alligators. We try to see through their eyes at ourselves and learn to understand that the point of view of a person, or an animal, is key to understanding. Bullying is often born of dislike; and dislike comes from misunderstanding and fear. If understanding is created and fear eliminated then much of the bullying goes away. Our  School Assemblies About Bullying prevention are offered for younger children than most. Our Anti-Bullying School Assemblies, are easily accepted, fun, informative and do not use confrontation or scare tactics, since we learn about the animals and through them, ourselves. Our Anti-Bullying School Assemblies are specifically designed for Elementary Schools and are run...

The Magic Reptile Birthday Party is so unique that no other company in the country has it! This new and very entertaining Snakes-N-Scales birthday party combines two ingredients children always love, magic and reptiles!!! Most magic shows are “old hat,” even if they do hide a bunny in it! This IS a magic show, but it’s also a wacky new reptile show that connects the amazing, even “magical” habits of reptiles with a magician’s trick that will illustrate that very point. This creates both a great illusionary mystery with an unforgettable educational experience. Are all the tricks in the Magic Reptile Birthday Party perfectly done?–Nope!
