In Melbourne, reptile parties were invented as a means to educate children about native animals. While there are many native species that are a risk and dangerous to people, these risks are not present in most educational reptile displays. At a reptile party in Melbourne with Snakebusters the children are able to handle safe and non-venomous species in total safety. The animals are clean and healthy and pose no disease risk to the children. The animals are tractable and used to being handxled and so as a rule don't bite. Yes this is an ever-present risk, but in terms of the Snakebusters reptiles, the worst-case situation is little more than a pin prick. If a child is bitten at a party, which only occurs once every few years, the child wears the pock hole as a badge of honour, although it's barely noticeable to everyone else.
The Snakebusters reptiles include everything that is cold-blooded and able to be handled by the party children. This is frogs, snakes, lizards, crocodiles and turtles, including large, small and absolutely huge. Snakebusters reptile parties and shows are a great option for kids who are bored with jumping castles, face painting, fairies and all the other less exciting fare commonly seen at kids birthday parties.
A reptile party usually lasts about an hour when the kids are young, or aged five and under. For children older than seven years of age, the duration is typically an hour and fifteen minutes, while for teenagers and tweens the party may last 90 minutes or even longer! The limiting factor to the reptile party wildlife experience is usually the age of the kids as opposed to much else.
While there are a number of companies who imitate Snakebusters and their wildlife shows, there are several factors that make Snakebusters the most reputable firm in Melbourne and that is besides their unmatched expertise and safety record. Snakebusters are alone in letting children hold the animals at all reptile shows. Less experienced companies invariably only let the kids touch the animals, and sometimes not even that. You will find that if given a choice, most kids will want to handle the animals.
At a reptile party where the kids are handling animals, the difficulty for the parents and the entertainer is getting the kids to let go of the reptiles so that they can be fed and everyone is sent home!
The main consideration for the parents at such a party is to make sure that everyone has their photo taken holding the wildlife. In other words, make sure your c amera battery is fully charged and that your memory card is empty. You will certainly be able to fill it up at a Snakebusters reptile show. Many people even videotape the whole event to replay at a later date.
It is only occasionally that most children get exposed to Australia's magnificent wildlife outside of the educational incursions of Snakebusters and their team of wildlife experts. Snakebusters have been rated the best reptile shows in Australia for many years and on the basis of their unmatched expertise with reptiles. They have the repuation for integrity and safety, which is rare in the reptile industry, where some newer operators have chosen to use venomous reptiles with venom glands in tact to put people's lives at risk. Only Snakebusters have a perfect safety record with reptiles spanning more than 30 years. For mums and dads with kids planning a reptile party, it is this unmatched safety record that makes Snakebusters the preferred option for most people when it comes to reptile shows, kids parties and the like.
