Wildlife shows for kindergartens and child care centres in Melbourne.

Kinder aged kids are never easy to entertain and educate because of their relatively short attention span. But when it comes to entertaining and educating children at a child care centre or kindergarten in Melbourne, there are many good options. Bringing in animals as part of a wildlife show or display is always a hit as almost all kids love creepy crawlies and little critters, as well as big ones like dinosaurs. While it may not be possible to bring dinosaurs in for the kinder, it is possible to have a mobile reptile show with everything required to give the kids a great fun time. While several companies service this market, only one does hands-on shows where the kids can actually handle the animals, rather than just getting close. The snake man Ray Hoser and his team travel to all parts of Victoria doing wildlife education and because they are in high demand it pays to book them as soon as you can. Mums and dads are often encouraged to come along as adults can learn as well from experts with the animals and often get to see things they have never seen before. All the snakes brought in for the snake show part are safe to handle and non-venomous. Even if deadly snakes are brought in for a show and tell, they should by law have been surgically devenomized in order to remove any type of risk from the kids. Only the snake man and his company have the expertise to have such snakes, but they are better than anything else when it comes to trying to educate the kids about snakes, snake safety, reptile awareness and all they need to know about keeping away from dangerous snakes, while at the same time enjoying the benefits of handling tame, non venomous species. A travelling wildlife show will as a rule bring creatures like baby crocodiles, frogs and lizards in order to round off the experience. This means that the wildlife displays can be a useful add-on for an end of year celebration, christmas party or other special occasion, such as father's day or mothers day. Cost per child is small and because the show comes to the place of your choice, usually being your own venue, you do not have to worry about the added cost and bother of organising buses or other transport for the kids and anyone else who may come along.But since then Hoser has built up a successful business known as Melbourne reptile parties and snake shows. The concept of an educational party show for kids parties and kinders and the like has since been copied by people all over the globe, even though its humble beginnings were in Melbourne and Sydney in Australia all those years ago. In every big cities nowadays you will find someone with some kind of business enterprise, somewhere advertising their mobile reptile or wildloife display to give you or your kids the ultimate reptile party show entertainment, kinder or school incursion of similar.
The reptile show and snake party idea is of a herpetologist bringing snakes, lizards and crocodiles to a venue and letting the kids hold the animals and learn about them at the same time.
While this is the original Hoser concept, for reasons not entirely certain, nobody else in Australia do their copy-cat reptile displays like this.
Alternatives to the Hoser theme are kids events that are in the form of a much less exciting show and tell or so-called interactive show, where the only interaction is between the displayer and the kids, but not the animals. In a few rare cases the kids are allowed to briefly touch or pat the reptiles. Other less experienced companies do boring static displays, these being a load of animals in glass fronted cages brought to your home or venue.
These less experienced imitators claim that letting wildlife or other animals being held at childrens parties is dangerous and should never be done. Hoser does not agree with this and backs his view with an unmatched perfect safety record spanning more than 32 years in the wildlife education space.
