He’s just one of many beetles just arrived to our menagerie. They’re all hand-picked for the best quality and definitely the favorite insects for many kids. Book us now!

Have an animal presentation for your kids school

schools

Herpetologist and conservationist Goatee Toni has been invited by many schools to perform professional wildlife education in the past 13 years. Kellett, CDNIS, FIS, AISHK, NAIS, ISF, IMS, Woodland, many ESF’s and a few local schools, just to name a few. Carefully chosen animal ambassadors represent their own species for students to understand the natural facts of how they live in the wild.

If you’d like your kids to gain such an amazing, hands-on and unique learning experience, please ask the year head or relevant teachers of your kids’ school to book Jurassic Garage!

Fernanda the Brazilian snake

Goatee Toni handles Fernanda the Brazilian snake –

One of the most beautifully patterned snakes in the world, Fernanda is definitely a unique attraction in our shows! It took us many years to have her grown up to a nice 6-footer from a tiny little baby. Something very interesting about these snakes is that they don’t lay eggs! Babies are born alive!

Have you met Fernanda yet?

First visit to local school

After 11 years, finally, we’re invited by a local school for the very first time. We had a great time presenting to the entire secondary school for its science week at Hong Kong Baptist University Affiliated School Wong Kam Fai Secondary School.

Meet Jabba the African Bullfrog

IMG_6853_ed_s_wm

Jabba is a unique animal of ours. He’s not an eye candy type of critter that makes people say “Ahhh so cute” like our hedgehogs or baby chinchillas do. He doesn’t make much people exaggerate their facial expressions like our snakes and tarantulas do. But he’s the only one that causes people to keep saying both “Yuck! He’s so ugly” and “Can I hold him now? Can I give him a kiss?” at the same time. Pure contradiction 🙂

When it comes to presenting these not-so-good-looking critters, it tests the skills and experience of the presenter. You can either make people hate it more or change their mind to start appreciating something they’ve disliked for a lifetime.
