Looking to plan a memorable party or event?  Check out NERD’s Interactive Animal Experience! 

We offer several options for parties and educational shows, from hands-on animal adventures in your home to parties held in our exciting Cave environment.  These animal experiences are exciting and memorable!

We captivate our audiences with an outstanding display of exotic animals, presented in a safe, fun and informative manner. 

Our educational shows promote awareness and respect for all living things, and feature the most diverse collection of exciting reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and much, much more!

Audience Participation Always Welcomed and Encouraged

Animals are displayed in a show-and-tell format and audience participation is not only welcomed, but strongly encouraged.  All of our critters are very tame, allowing you and your party a hands-on experience so you can see exactly what makes each animal so unique.

Many of our animals are quite large and all of them are memorable in presence and rarity.  NERD parties and educational shows offer a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity so be sure to bring your camera.  You may also engage our professional photographer for pictures of your special event.
