Insects: The Largest Group of Animals on Earth

Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches

Gromphadorhina portentosa

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

Ceratophrys ornata

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

Bennet’s Wallaby

Macropus rufogriseus

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!

Unfortunately, I am getting more skittish and aggressive as I get older. Therefore, Randy has officially retired me from traveling to events. (I am much happier about this.) If your parents really want you to see an albino wallaby, you might be able to call Randy and visit me at my enclosure.

If you just gotta have a mammal at your event, let me know and we may be able to find a substitute critter.

Experience the unique!
