Listed below are just a sample of the animals RepTyler’s can bring to your event – We currently have 27 different species of exotic animals and over 150 animals in total!!! Here just a few………..
The Burmese Python is one of the larger species and is ranked as the 6th largest of all snakes in the world. They don’t have venom but that doesn’t mean a bite won’t hurt! In the wild this reptile is a major threat to anything or anyone that gets in their way, however, our captive bred giant is very friendly and isn’t interested in hurting human beings unless taunted or frightened by us or if we smell of food!
The average length of Burmese Pythons is 12 feet long but they can end up being much longer – growing up to a massive 23 feet. In the wild they can weigh up to 200 pounds but Arnie is a mere 44 pounds. The yellow colouring and reddish eyes makes this guy an Albino.
Species: Panther Chameleon

The Panther Chameleon is a spectacularly coloured lizard. They come in many shades and degrees of brilliant blues and greens, and even black and can also have vertical bars of reds and blues. And as with any chameleon, watching their colour change is always fascinating.
Panther Chameleons are moderately-sized lizards, typically males will reach about 17″ in length, though they could reach up to 22″. The males are more vibrantly coloured than the females, though the colouring they have varies depending upon the region where they originate. Females, no matter what region they come from, tend to be brown or tan, sometimes with patches of pink or bright orange. They also have excellent sight and can launch their tongue out up to 26 times the length of the body to catch prey!
The Rose-haired Tarantula is one of the most docile and hardy spiders being kept. In captivity. It is a very durable tarantula, originating from one of the driest scrub habitats in the world
Chilean Rose-haired Tarantulas are moderately large and quite stocky . They have a leg span reaching about 5 inches. They are coloured in a dark brown to black but then covered with a coat of reddish-orange to pink hairs over the entire body. Their various common names are derived from this subtle rose casting on the hair.
