MORE SCHOOLS SEE SNAKEBUSTERS THAN ANY OTHER SCHOOL REPTILE INCURSION!
incursions are always popular and more schools in Victoria see Snakebusters
than anyone else in the mobile reptile game.
Because we’re Australia's best reptiles, it’s that simple!
Australia's ONLY hands-on reptile show
Best educational outcomes
The kids have most fun
And only Snakebusters have the deadly snakes with a zero risk guarantee!
Forget the false claims by newly licenced rivals.
Only Snakebusters have a verifiable 30 years expertise with school reptile incursions.
Only Snakebusters is owned and managed by Australia’s leading Snakeman, Raymond Hoser, author of nine definitive books, including the 1989 Bible “Australian Reptiles and Frogs”, the man who has discovered and scientifically described more species of snake in Australasia than anyone else this century, published hundreds of definitive papers and more.
For the school incursions, Snakebusters have the
winning combination no one else has.
1 - The only legal deadly snake show in Victoria (see below) and
2 - The only “full on hands on” where ALL the audience gets to hold the whole suite of reptiles and frogs ranging from crocs, huge pythons and the rest (assuming they want to).
Other outfit’s claims of “hands on” disappoint as they end up being “touch reptile only” as in “hands on” snake or similar.
Only Snakebusters brings lots of all kinds of reptiles to schools educational incursions so all kids can hold reptiles at once and without waiting!
School students are likely to ask in depth questions and of course it’s Snakebusters with the proven expertise who are likely to be able to give a correct and accurate answer at incursions more often.
All the reptiles are clean, immaculate and unrivalled in terms of docility.
While incursions can be altered to fit the demands of schools, numbers of students and the like, the preferred format is 1-2 classes at a time (up to 50 kids) and over 50-90 minutes per session in a standard “classroom” setting (older kids, longer sessions).
While our “generic” incursion show is preferred by most schools, presentations can be varied to fit the curriculum (e.g. Classification, yrs 7-8), adaptations, local snakes or similar).
Printed class study sheets are available on demand (including the examples on our website) and all school groups receive free a copy of the “Hoser Wildlife Collection” CD-Rom which contains nine books, hundreds of articles, powerpoint presentations and more.
The information on this CD-rom is vast (costs thousands of dollars in hard copy) and it enables a continuation of the reptile incursion experience long after the Snakeman and Snakebusters have left.
In terms of safety, no one beats Snakebusters.
We are the only people in Australia with venomoid snakes. These are snakes with their venom glands surgically removed, making them totally harmless.
They look and act no different to their fully venomous peers, but the difference is that they can be handled by Raymond Hoser and his team like no one else can.
None of our snakes are tormented at school educational incursions with sticks and tongs as seen in antiquated snake demonstrations.
32 of the 2004/5 OH and S Act Victoria also prohibits the use of venomous
snakes with venom glands intact for incursions in Victoria, meaning:
Snakebusters is now the only company legally allowed to use deadly species at School incursions.
Put simply, anyone else is a risk ... and if using deadly species, also breaking the law!
We have WWC Checks, Ethics Committee Clearances to cover new departmental rules, 10 Million Liability Insurance and all other permits and the like required.
Pricing is from $260 per reptile incursion session and less if several are booked at once, (av. $5-10 per child). For details go to:
