Australia's ONLY hands-on reptiles show
World's Deadliest Snakes (Devenomized) - Zero Risk! (see below)
Live reptile shows with crocs, snakes, lizards and the like are always popular with primary school-age children and none more so than Snakeman Raymond Hoser's snakebusters shows.
No one else has the expertise and ability to impart information like the Snakeman and his team. The children are captivated and teachers will be stunned at how he can have the undivided attention of a full class of students for the hour or so his interactive show goes on.
Several basic lecture plans are used and others can be formulated to suit the special needs of the group, their study curriculum or whatever. We cater for all CSF levels.
Most of our shows start with a "snake safety" lesson, so that the children won't rush off and try to catch or handle deadly snakes. Snakebusters are alone in Australia in that we have vet certified, surgically devenomized snakes, called venomoid snakes that are used to show the children what is deadly and what's not in complete safety.This includes all local species and the world's top five deadliest (shown held at once on the images on our webpages), which is another world exclusive for Snakebusters.
Then the bulk of the show is the "hands on" where the children get to hold various harmless snakes, large lizards, crocodile or tortoise. By using multiple reptiles at once (something special to snakebusters), the children are usually able to touch or handle immediately, hence removing the risk of bored kids waiting for their turn.
As for other lectures and shows, parents and adults are also recommended to attend and while our preferred group size is about 30, there is some latitude here. Some schools double up classes to get each group at 50-60 students so as to save costs and if using the fundraising options, often actually make a profit on the entire snakebusters experience.
Printed class study sheets are available on demand (including the examples linked here) and all school and scout groups receive free a copy of the "Hoser Wildlife Collection" CD-Rom which is valued at $55 and is the reference of choice in terms of Australian Reptiles and Frogs and Endangered Animals of Australia.
The information on this CD-rom is vast and it enables a continuation of the reptile experience long after Raymond Hoser and his show have left.
While Snakebusters have long been regarded as the market leader in terms of live reptiles, people are always surprised that it rarely costs more to get the best. Pricing is from $260 per session (2009 prices) and less per session if several are booked at once.
As a rule we try to keep pricing to about $5-$7 per student which represents unparalleled value for money.
Note: Recently staff from Worksafe Victoria made a ruling that it is now illegal to demonstrate venomous snakes that have not been surgically devenomized (see Sect 32 of the OH and S Act 2004), due to the obvious risks. As a result, a number of outfits formerly using venomous snakes have desisted. Only Snakebusters have devenomized snakes that have been certified, microchipped and approved by a registered, practicing veterinary surgeon. Only Snakebusters can guarantee a fully legal and risk-free deadly snake show!
