    I just ran across your website and thought I would comment on the wonderful ever-lasting experience that my son who turned 8 in Aug.. I don't usually comment but you left a profounding affect that a year later we still talk about how great your entertainment was. Not to mention the souvenir photo and snake skin. It's all worth it! The money, the smiles on the little ones faces and your personalities with the children! Bravo!"

    You two had left our house only a couple hours ago and my kids are still talking about how silly Steve was. What a wonderful performance. Now I know what the difference is between your "show" and just a regular petting zoo. I had a petting zoo stye show last year and it was very nice but nothing like the funny performance you two put on. I went with the petting zoo because it was cheaper but thought i'd spring for the extra this year and so happy I did. I will recommend you to all my friends with kids.

    Maria, I feel so sorry for you having to put up with the 50 year old "Kid" you married. He was such an unexpected delight. He left such an impression on my kids that they still imitate him and its been a month since you did your birthday party. Steve has a gift to educate children by making them laugh. Keep up the good work!"
    - Jane M.

    "I just have to say i didn't expect such a pretty lady to handle snakes but my teenage sons were happy to sit in on their little brothers birthday party show for some reason (haha) In the first 15 minutes of the show my children didn't stop laughing at Steve and his silly antics. By the time the show ended I wanted to hug you both. I could see your love for animals is genuine and you taught that love to my children and I appreciate that so much. Thank you Reptile Rescue.

    "Wow! What a great show you two put on. 30 children jazzed up on sugar and they still sat and watched every thing you do. True showman delivering an important message of care for animals.
