Party Animals 

The birthday child gets to pick out three animals to meet up close and personal! Animal availability is subject to change. Usually, you can choose from the following: owl, hawk, gecko, frog, toad, turtle, snake, guinea pig, ferret, chinchilla, bunny, bearded dragon, cockroach, tarantula, scorpion. We recommend choosing at least one animal your child can pet - the birds, amphibians, tarantula, and scorpion cannot be touched.  Bernice, our tortoise, cannot make appearances at the party due to her size.
