In a one-hour visit with our Cool Critters, your party guests or students will receive a wealth of information about some of the world’s coolest, most fascinating and sometimes largest reptiles, amphibians and arthropods.

While our collection is truly amazing, we feel our greatest strengths are our love for children, passion for education and ability to relate to all age levels. We’ve delivered at least 2000 performances for children and have never received a negative critique. Please check our reviews on both YELP and on Gig Salad to hear what others have to say.

These shows make an excellent addition to your science classes, a fun reward for your student body and excellent entertainment at birthday parties and events.  With over 10 years of performance experience we think we’ve mastered the art of making presentations as entertaining as they are educational.

For School Presentations, teachers appreciate that Cool Critters Animal Presentations meet content standards for Grades K-5 and 7. Time is spent discussing the concepts of species habitats, camouflage, anatomical form and function, specialization, predator vs. prey, and ecology in a manner and in terms that are easily absorbed by young students. School presentations can be tailored to fit your curriculum and can be as academic or informal as you desire.

Depending on the size of your audience, your students may be afforded the opportunity to touch or hold many of the animals presented. At birthday parties, your young guests will have a ‘hands-on’ experience with most of the 16 animals presented.

Our show animals are carefully selected for their good health and gentle temperaments. Appearing in over 200 shows each year, our animals have been handled by thousands of children and are very accustomed to high-energy crowds! Cool Critters is a licensed animal exhibitor and we carry $2,000,000 in liability insurance.  We are also an Authorized Vendor for the California PTA, local PTAs, and school districts.

We are located in Southern California and serve the Counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Northern San Diego. For a quote please call me us at (714)281-7609 or send us an email at coolcritters.AP@gmail.com
