Insects: The Largest Group of Animals on Earth
Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches
Insects are awesome. Did you know that? I am part of the group that makes up 80% of living animals. 80%!!! Based upon this fact, Party Safari just had to get some cool insects to show kids, and they chose us. Don’t worry, we are not the fast cockroaches that scurry all over the place when a light is turned on. We are slow, we don’t bite, we eat fresh fruits and veggies, and we hiss…Let’s be honest, that’s pretty cool.
Amphibians: Both Land and Water
Argentine Horned Frog
I know, I know, I’m just a frog. People look at me and think, oh how cute, a little froggy. But let me warn you, I am a voracious ambush predator, and if you try and touch me, I may just jump up and bite your finger! Better let Randy feed me pinky mice instead. (Don’t worry, even he jumps when I grab them.) I will get to be as large as a dinner plate as I age, which works well, because I love eating.
Mammals: Hair and Milk
My name is “Samwise” because I have big hairy feet (The Hobbit). I am a wallaby which means I am a special kind of mammal (a marsupial like kangaroos). You may have noticed, I am also albino, which means I am even more special!
Let your parents know that I am a prey animal, and therefore, I am only allowed at indoor events. I do not mix well with dogs (their relatives, the dingo, try and eat me), balloons (predator attacks from above freak me out), and loud noises.
Unfortunately, I am getting more skittish and aggressive as I get older. Therefore, I am only able to attend events with ten or less people, and even then I am not always in the mood to be touched.
Samwise is not guaranteed at all events due to distance and other factors. If you just gotta have a mammal at your event, let me know and we may be able to find a substitute critter.
