The Difference Between Fear and Appreciation is KNOWLEDGE

For over 50 years, Yarbrough's Educational Reptile Program (also known as the original  "Snake Show"), has focused on delivering a fun, exciting, and most importantly educational program. Our "live" show is to share our knowledge and experience about reptiles from your area and around the world.


Our program is not to induce or cause fear but instead help overcome the feelings often associated with snakes and other reptiles. We discuss several informative and safety topics. 

  • How to identify non-venomous and venomous reptiles in your area
  • Discuss common myths and misconceptions
  • Safety instructions should an encounter ever occur
  • Correct first aid treatment
  • Protection of species in their natural habitats and Eco System from extinction, biodiversity/biological conservation, as well as other Educational topics

This presentation includes 12-15 reptiles and is fast-paced with no problem keeping the attention of the audience during the 50 minute program. We bring both venomous and non-venomous reptiles (unless an all non-venomous program is requested) found in your area along with exotic snakes, lizards, and tortoises. We also include our  hand raised American Alligator "Sweet Pea" and the ever-popular giant Python that allows students and teachers a hands-on experience.
