Sharks and Whales School Assembly...

May 26, 2015 by


Sovereigns of the Seas! Sovereigns of the Seas is our combination Sharks and Whales School Assembly that looks at both of these awesome and threatened groups of animals. On the “surface” this is a show of opposites: the sharks are fish and the whales are mammals; the sharks are generally loners and the whales live in groups, the sharks have been swimming in the oceans of the world since well before Dinosaurs walked on land and the whales came along well after. But as we look deeper, we find much more in common between them. New research is showing that some sharks species communicate with sound, like whales; some sharks protect their young, like whales and both groups will often cooperate to catch food. And of course sharks and whales also have the same major enemy,...

Poisonous And Venomous Animals School Assembly...

May 25, 2015 by


In our Poisonous And Venomous Animals School Assembly you will find animals that rarely share a stage together, from spiders to fish to giant lizards! The words, “Poisonous and Venomous,” are often confused and used interchangeably, but they aren’t the same. They are different enough in fact, so that one could be considered a adequate defense and the other an extremely effective offense. Poison, usually chemicals that maybe harmful if swallowed, acts as a deterrent to being eaten. These could be considered passive weapons that are only useful if the poisonous animal is attacked and then the attacker has to be susceptible to the poison. Venom, however is the nuclear weapon of the animal world! It can make a 10 pound rattlesnake the equal of a 1,000 pound horse, turn a sleepy cobra into the...

Kaleidoscope of Animals School Assemblies...

May 19, 2015 by


The Kaleidoscope of Animals School Assemblies is a peek at the diversity of life on Earth, what used to be called “a survey of life,”  but it’s more than just learning a little classification. The kaleidoscope has many facets, colors and interlocking parts and we saw it as great analogy to nature. A wonderful way to visualize how interdependent and beautiful the natural world is.  No other Animals School Assemblies, from any source, will have this kind of diversity. This is whirlwind tour of just a few of the more important groups of animals on Earth, leaving out the 2 most well known, mammals and birds. We leave them out because there is so much attention focused on them generally, we feel the vast majority of animals are left out. For example, the population of ants, in...

Endangered Species School Assemblies...

May 10, 2015 by


  At Snakes-N-Scales we are always looking for what schools will like, and be able to integrate into their curricula, but still be fun for the kids! In this case we have created a paired live/non-live Endangered Species School Assemblies animal program that offers several variations on a theme! In the Endangered Species School Assemblies program there are, (at least,) 2 animals from each habitat you may choose, and you may choose as many as 4 of the given habitats. There will be, (at least) 1 live animal and 1 non-live animal discussed for that habitat. The non-live animals will be represented by either a skull, a life size cardboard cut out, a model or a pelt, and then a photo of that animal. The live animals are represented by our rescued reptiles or other types,...

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...
