Reptile Shows

Wild Things Zoofari Inc is now offering animal and reptile shows in the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex. Wild Things Zoofari Inc. has been a success story for the last 5 years, teaching children and adults about the wonders of animals around the world. Some of our animals are endangered species and the kids may never get to see these animals up close and actually be able to touch some of them. With the collaboration of Ray Mitchell, Wild Things Zoofari Inc. made it posible to bring these shows to your Birthday Parties, libraries, Schools and Festivals.

Animal Ambassadors:


Carpet Python

Morelia spilota, commonly referred to as carpet python and diamond pythons, is a large snake of the family Pythonidae found in Australia, New Guinea (Indonesia and Papua New Guinea), Bismarck Archipelago, and the northern Solomon Islands. There are many subspecies; ITIS lists six, the Reptile Database seven, and the IUCN eight


Chilean rose tarantula

The Rose Hair Tarantula (Grammostola rosea), also known in the United States as the Chilean rose tarantula,Chilean fire tarantula or the Chilean red-haired tarantula (depending on the colormorph), is probably the most common species of tarantula available in American and European pet stores today, due to the large number of wild-caught specimens exported cheaply from their native Chile into the pet trade. The species is also known from Bolivia and Argentina.


Boa constrictor

The boa constrictor or red-tailed boa (Boa constrictor) is a species of large, heavy-bodied snake. It is a member of the family Boidae found in North, Central, and South America, as well as some islands in the Caribbean. A staple of private collections and public displays, its color pattern is highly variable yet distinctive. Ten subspecies are currently recognized, although some of these are controversial. This article focuses on the species Boa constrictor as a whole, but also specifically on the nominate subspecies B. c. constrictor


Thayeri King Snake

Use only in our reptile shows. The Thayeri kingsnake (Lampropeltis mexicana thayeri), also known as the Nuevo Leon kingsnake, is a nonvenomous snake belonging to the family Colubridae. The Thayeri kingsnake is a subspecies of the mexicana group of the Lampropeltis genus.


Leopard gecko

The leopard gecko (Eublepharis macularius) is a crepuscular ground-dwelling lizard naturally found in the deserts of Asia and throughout Pakistan, to parts of northern India. Unlike most geckos, leopard geckos possess movable eyelids. It has become a well-established and popular pet in captivity.


Gopher Snake

Use only in our reptile shows. Pacific gopher snake adults range in size from 2.5-7 feet (76-213 cm) in total length. However, most of the subspecies reach a length of 4.5-5 feet (137-152 cm). The hatchlings are relatively long, and they have been recorded at lengths upward of 20 inches (51 cm). The Pacific gopher snake has a base color ranging from yellow to dark brown and has a gray coloring on the sides of the body. It is a spotted snake, with the spots being dark brown. Usually there are 41 to 99 spots on the body, while the tail spots range from 14 to 33. The side of the body has 2 or 3 rows of alternating black and brown spots.


Blue Tongue Skink

Use only in our reptile shows. Blue-tongued skinks comprise the Australasian genus Tiliqua, which contains some of the largest members of the skink family (Scincidae). They are commonly called blue-tongued lizards or simply blue-tongues in Australia. As suggested by these common names, a prominent characteristic of the genus is a large blue tongue that can be bared as a bluff-warning to potential enemies. Blue-tongued skinks are bred in captivity and sold as house pets.


Giant Marine Toad

Use only in our reptile shows. The cane toad (Rhinella marina), also known as the giant neotropical toad or marine toad, is a large, terrestrial true toad which is native to Central and South America, but has been introduced to various islands throughout Oceania and the Caribbean, as well as northern Australia. It is a member of the genus Rhinella, but was formerly in the genus Bufo, which includes many different true toad species found throughout Central and South America. The cane toad is a prolific breeder; females lay single-clump spawns with thousands of eggs. Its reproductive success is partly because of opportunistic feeding: it has a diet, unusual among anurans, of both dead and living matter. Adults average 10–15 cm (3.9–5.9 in) in length; the largest recorded specimen weighed 2.65 kg (5.8 lb) with a length of 38 cm (15 in) from snout to vent.


Red-footed tortoise

Use only in our reptile shows. Red-footed tortoises (Chelonoidis carbonaria) are tortoises from northern South America. They are medium-sized tortoises that generally average 30 centimetres (12 in) as adults, but can reach over 40 cm (16 in). They have a dark-colored loaf-shaped carapace (back shell) with a lighter patch in the middle of each scute (scales on the shell), and dark limbs with brightly colored scales that range from pale yellow to dark red. There are recognized differences between red-footed tortoises from different regions. They are closely related to the yellow-footed tortoise (C. denticulata) from the Amazon Basin. They are popularly kept as pets, and over-collection has caused them to be vulnerable to extinction.


Bearded Dragon

Native to Australia, bearded dragons, are an exceptional reptile to have around and at functions. Their personalities are low keyed and they love every one of all ages. Plus the kids get to meet a real live “Dragon.”



Available with reptile shows. A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, which is in the order Erinaceomorpha. There are seventeen species of hedgehog in five genera, found through parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and New Zealand (by introduction). There are no hedgehogs native to Australia, and no living species native to the Americas. Hedgehogs share distant ancestry with shrews (family Soricidae), with gymnures possibly being the intermediate link, and have changed little over the last 15 million years.


Ring-Tailed Lemur

Available with reptile shows. When born, a ring-tailed lemur baby weighs less than 100 g (3 oz.). The newborn is carried on its mother's chest for 1-2 weeks and then is carried on her back. At 2 weeks, the baby starts eating solid food and begins venturing out on its own. But the juvenile is not fully weaned until 5 months of age.



Available with reptile shows. Chinchillas are crepuscular (most active around dawn and dusk) rodents, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels. They are native to the Andes mountains in South America and live in colonies called "herds" at high altitudes up to 4,270 metres (14,000 ft). Historically, chinchillas lived in the Andes of Bolivia, Peru, and Chile, but today colonies in the wild remain only in Peru and Chile at altitudes of over 5000m


French Lop Rabbits

Available with reptile shows. The French Lop Rabbit was first bred in France around 1850 and established in France as a rabbit for meat during the mid-19th century. It is believed to have been produced by crossing two existing breeds, the English Lop and the Butterfly Rabbit of France. The Butterfly Rabbit is still bred in France and can be seen at the Grand Prix Show in Paris. This rabbit closely resembles our Flemish Giant of today, but is shorter in body length and weighs approximately 15 pounds.


Caramel Sugar Glider

Available with reptile shows. Caramel sugar gliders are actually a standard grey; which is a normal standard for their subspecies. They are a more champagne color than caramel color (wild caught are more caramel color due to their natural diet) and tend to have white hands and feet. They have a naturally calm disposition and make slightly different pitched sounds. They have a distinctly larger frame than our sub-species of gliders and have very thick tails.


Prairie dog

Prairie dogs (genus Cynomys) are mostly herbivorous burrowing rodents native to the grasslands of North America. The five different species of prairie dogs are: black-tailed, white-tailed, Gunnison's, Utah, and Mexican prairie dogs. They are a type of ground squirrel, found in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
