Private Zoom Calls. Please ask for details


I normally get back to you through any method with 24/48 hours.
If I have not then you may be lost in cyberspace so please contact me again.
The best method of contact is through email as I’ll then be able
to directly email you back any paperwork you may need.
Of course we may need a phone call though to sort the finer details.
Whichever is easiest for you I just look forward to chatting to you.

I am a professional ranger able to support curriculum subjects with some amazing live animal handling displays. Pupils can learn whilst having fun, perhaps a little scared at first, but ultimately amazed!

My shows are adapted to suit all ages. I am able to finalise a subject already covered or provide an introduction to a new one. Using live animals builds confidence and understanding in children. I use a number of exotic animals, such as snakes, scorpions, giant snails, frogs, tarantulas, millipedes and many more. I am able to engage with pupils who have severe learning difficulties, to give them a great experience too.

Birthday parties are a special experience. What better way to celebrate than having an animal handling session in your front room! Just add some exotic animals to your guest list and make it a day they will always remember. Don’t forget that parties are great for animal loving adults too.

I specialise and pride myself in close up animal handling. I now visit groups of people from all ages and cover many different venues and events.

I have had many years experience of taking exotic animals into schools and making the curriculum fun by 'bringing alive' the lessons.

Not all the fun is for children! Please see the Other Shows page for details of other events.

Being supported by The Princes Trust is a guarantee that I am great at what I do. I am also fully insured and CRB checked

As I work for myself, I must be continually exceptional in my work. I have always had 100% great positive feedback and aim to never cancel a booking. Because of my reliability most of my work is repeat bookings. It is always nice to have as much notice as possible before the event but can take a last minute booking if I am available.


I do not over work my animals and so have 40 species in my collection. I may work 7 days a week but they will only work a couple as I rotate them. I am highly organised and slightly OCD so if you have a last minute booking and I am free then we can organise it fast.





Do you want a private Zoom call with me and my animals direct from my animal room?

A birthday party treat or just for fun or education. I’m flexible with the options so if you want a longer call then just ask. Are you still at school and want the pupils to see me through Zoom maybe on a big screen you have? Then we can organise it together.

A single direct Zoom into a school for 45 minutes or a class from a school. You’ll be able to show me on your schools smart screen or home device. I will use 5/6 animals and teach a curriculum subject such as the rainforest layers, habitats or lifecycles etc. More are listed on my website. It’s just £50 which is a special reduced price to help in the current situation.

I’m now performing a 30 minutes 1 to 1 family Zoom call for £30 using 3/4 animals. It’ll be a very personal experience and just you and the family can ask me anything you like in that time.

The third option is a maximum of 4 families join the Zoom call for 45 minutes. This will be for just £50 in total so only £12.50 per family and I’ll use 5/6 animals.

I can also teach a curriculum subject in this time.

It all depends on which species I use and the subject. Please get in touch for more information.

So check out my website for details of the curriculum subjects. You’ll also see how I can help when normality resumes.

SO YOU DONT USE ZOOM FOR YOUR VIDEO MEETINGS. That’s ok, I can also join you through Meet, Teams or any other. Unsure then please ask.

I look forward to hearing from you.
