A big snake

Do you fancy having a snake slithering round your classroom? We can bring a range of wild animals such as invertebrates, mammals, amphibians, birds and reptiles right to your classrooms. Based in Wolverhampton, we cater to customers across the West Midlands. Get in touch with us to make a booking.

All our staff are DBS checked and licensed, we have full liability insurance cover and a risk assessment.

School visits by The Animal Man

Prior to the school visit, inform us of which animals you'd like to see at your school. We will then tailor our session to achieve maximum learning. The early learning goals can be addressed using animals as a stimulus. The teachers need to decide how they would want to make use of the visiting lecturer, as a presentation to a large group of pupils or work with a year group or class. All you need to do is consider which animals would be appropriate for the age group and work being undertaken by the pupils and we will do the rest. If you have any questions, or would like to ask what we think would be best for your age group, give us a call.
