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...

Weird Animals Party

Aug 1, 2015 by


Our Weird Animals Party grows out of an idea that we have many animals that are seen by very few people because they fit into small or obscure niches in our shows. It also grows out of doing our Anti-Bullying Assemblies, where we teach that odd isn’t bad, just different, and different can be fun!  What’s weird about any animal depends, to great extent, on what you’re used to. If what you see mostly is green, and then there is something red, red is weird. So our purpose here is show a few of the oddities of different groups, describe why they’re unusual and discuss how they manage in their weirdness! Weird Animals Party Possible Participants   Lizards have legs and snakes don’t. Well, nearly so. There are no snakes with legs but a fair number of...

Animal Themed Bar and Bat Mitzvah Party Entertainment...

Nov 1, 2014 by


 The only thing missing from most Animal Themed Bar and Bat Mitzvah Parties is, ironically, the ANIMALS! It seemed to us the reason for this was 2 fold; 1. The people giving the party were worried about the animals ruining their party and 2. There wasn’t anyone offering animals in a way that introduced the animals appropriately and safely into the party. If you can solve the second, then the first goes away! So welcome to Snakes-N-Scales Animal Themed Bar and Bat Mitzvah Party Entertainment Page! We have the finest selection of traveling animals in NJ, southern NY and CT, and the immediate surrounding areas. Literally hundreds of animals to choose from including types of snakes, turtles, frogs, sharks, lizards, alligators, pythons, fish, salamanders, spiders and insects. Most of these animals are rescued from all kinds of unfortunate...

Shark School Program

Oct 6, 2014 by


    Shark School Program is entirely about sharks, to our knowledge, is a completely unique program offered nowhere else. This show can be done with a live shark as the finale or without one, if the rules do not allow live animals.  Shark School Program covers shark family history and diversity, relationships to their habitat, predators and prey, biology, new research and relationship to humans. The Shark School Program is varied somewhat depending on the grade and sophistication of the audience. This is a multi-media presentation, using photos, charts, artifacts, models, preserved specimens and video. Children will introduced to sharks the same way we have introduced snakes to kids for 2 decades; in a non-threatening fact filled, fun presentation. The idea is have them leave loving sharks; and understanding that like with snakes, bears or...

Save the Whales Assemblies

Sep 14, 2014 by


Snakes-N-Scales Saves the Whales and “goes off the deep end” to offer a program that has no live animals in it! No real whales, of course, but a great interesting combination of real and artificial hand specimens, illustrative posters and photos, and a few short video clips. These Whales Assemblies offer much more than just a few pictures or a sleepy slide show! The program begins by introducing types of whales and what they look like, using photos and video. There are 2 basic types, the toothed whales like the Sperm Whale and the Dolphins and the Baleen Whales, like the Humpback above. Beluga Whale at the Atlanta Aquarium, photo by Greg Hume. Why the whales are in trouble is discussed with the class; from the hundreds of years of whaling to the modern problems...

Tropical Rainforest School Assemblies...

Mar 22, 2014 by


Tropical Rainforest School Assemblies seeks to bring an understanding and even an affection for the animals of that live there in a small effort to keep the magnificent habitats alive. The Tropical Rainforest Ecosystem is perhaps THE most interesting on Earth. These forests are filled with amazing animal species using adaptions to survive that are astonishing to learn about, yet humans are quickly, STILL, destroying them.   These animals must survive both their natural dangers and the changes that we are producing in these amazing places. Education is the first step to the understanding of a problem, learn what we can all do to make this a better world and come be a part of the solution! The animals that are part of this program are mostly rescues. We do purchase animals but we make sure that those purchased are either...
