IT WAS SUCH A GREAT COMBANATION OF “OOOHS AND AAAHS WITH FASCINATING INFORMATION. IT WAS THE LARGEST CROWD
WE EVER HAD FOR A SUMMER READING PROGRAM! PATRONS WERE POSITIVELY COMMENTING ON IT ALL DAY!

The Best Bang For Your Buck!
We were looking for something
special to do for our snake loving son's 10th birthday when I stumbled across Richard's website. We offered our son a choice:
a traditional birthday party and gift or a Reptile Man party. He chose the reptile party and it was one of the best decisions
he ever made!
It's a week later and I can't set foot in my son's school without being stopped by someone raving about
the show. The kids can't stop talking about it. Kids that weren't even at the party are talking about it. Even his teacher
wanted to know more since the reptile interest of her students has gone through the roof.
Richard was punctual and
amazingly professional. All of the animals were healthy and gorgeous. The show had exactly the right mix important information,
fun facts, true-life stories, and playfulness. The fact that these city kids got to touch and hold this global array of animals
was an unbeatable experience they won't soon forget. Even the kids who were a little wary of reptiles couldn't help but join
in the fun.
Would I hire Richard again? Absolutely and without hesitation. The money spent on this show was some of
the best money I've ever spent.

Long live the reptile king!
There are a couple of rock stars for the under 10 set. Richard Richey, aka The
Reptile Man, is supreme reptile emperor as far as I am concerned. I've seen his shows at least a dozen times and
am still giddy after each performance.
The list of his free public performances are on his web site and if you have
kids, or don't, I highly suggest you catch his show. Seriously, borrow a kid if you need an excuse.
him at OMSI as part of their annual reptile show, at libraries, private parties, city parks and even corporate events. I'd
love to hire him for a birthday party but my kids seem to think lasertag is more fun. Wrong!
His shows usually
last about one hour and he presents between 15 - 20 different creatures including snapping turtles, bearded dragons, crocodiles,
king cobras, rattlesnakes and puff adders. What he does amazingly well is balance education with humor. If you
are squeamish do not sit in the front row. Those snakes sense fear and will bite you in half and swallow you whole.
He takes lots of volunteers from the audience to have snakes draped over their shoulders and lizards balanced
on their heads. For a child's birthday party, the birthday kid is front and center and holds or is held by most of the animals.
Great photo ops! My favorite trick is when he blows a kiss to his crocodile and it 'falls asleep.'
you have to sit through a lot of junk being a parent. When I go to one of his shows, I thank my lucky stars I have
kids that introduced me to this amazing guy!
Richard has the most extensive venomous handling experience on the West Coast with over thirty years
experience, and totaling thousands of hours each year of hands on activity.
Thank you so much for coming
on Saturday to share your knowledge and reptiles with us at the Portland Children's Museum. Your presentation was so engaging,
informative, and fun. I know our visitors - young and old - thoroughly enjoyed watching and interacting with you. Thank you
for helping make our Pet Month so special with your visit!

Thank you again for coming again this year. This is always my favorite day of the
year. You are such a natural, and your pacing of the presentations is amazing. You make an hour speed by in what feels like
five minutes! Watching the Timber Rattler strike the balloon was one of the
most amazing things I've seen.

to amaze me with how you have combined entertainment and education for our families—thank you. Folks keep coming to
see you even though they have seen you many times before. I think they especially like to be able to touch and interact (or
watch someone else be the “victim”) with your reptilian friends. We counted up to 600 people on the lawn to watch
