Schedule an In-School Field Trip

Reptile Wrangler, Ken Panse, has a program designed for schools, for multiple shows on the same day, for student rotation through a designated area by classrooms or grades.

Our menagerie of local and exotic animals is displayed in a conventional set-up, permitting smaller groups of students (and available parents) to experience the critters in an enclosed environment, such as a classroom or media center. This environment allows for a customized agenda that will bolster specific learning objectives in Biology, Geography, Environmental Sciences, and Language arts.

We can customize the animal selection for specific criteria such as rain-forest/jungle, temperate, or desert. The selections could include lizards, turtle/tortoises, snakes, toads/frogs and large bugs. They are housed in clear containers when not being handled by Ken. The duration of each group’s participation can be in 25-minute intervals with 5 minutes for recess.

The cost of the in house field trip begins at $200 for the first hour. Additional time is scheduled at a rate of $75/half hour, or $125/ hour.

Thus a 3-hour display would cost $450.00, allowing for six 25 minute shows.

No travel fees are assessed for the extended Metro Atlanta area.

The school saves money by avoiding bussing and fuel costs while experiencing a top notch, fully insured, educational performance on site.

Questions and reservations can be made using the form below or by phoning Ken’s office at 770-489-3512 days or evenings.
