Mark Rosenthal's "Animal Magic" is dedicated to life science education and exotic wildlife conservation. Since 1980, our programs have fascinated audiences everywhere. Our unique blend of exotic animals and life sciences has made us one of the most sought-after school assemblies in the country. We were even voted Nickelodeon's Michigan Entertainer of the Year!

Our live performances have allowed us to spread our knowledge, respect, and appreciation for the animals that share our planet. In addition to education and awareness, we also show our commitment to the animal kingdom in other ways. We're sent to rescue the often illegally obtained "pet" when local animal control officers are confronted with a dangerous exotic. Our fully-licensed sanctuary accepts most exotic animals from private citizens.

Animal Magic is also honored to have been asked to perform for several celebrities, including President Barack Obama, Hayden Panettiere, Neve Campbell, Wes Craven, Colin Powell, David Arquette, Emma Roberts, Matthew Lillard, Dan Gilbert, as well as members of the Detroit Lions, Tigers, and Red Wings.

What Our Customers Say


It was a great show! Our students were completely engaged and extremely interested in Reptile Adventures. The reptile expert did a great job of providing very useful information while at the same time making his presentation entertaining to the students. The Reptile Adventures Show was excellent and I will definitely recommend it to others.

The Reptile Adventures Show was extremely educational as well as entertaining for everyone involved! It was great to see the large variety of reptiles including the larger reptiles which added to the 'WOW' factor for the students. Our students also received a lot of hands-on interaction with the reptiles which was very important for them. Every minute was action-packed!

Our parents were also very impressed with the show's professionalism. We had several positive comments and parents thanking us after the show.

The reptile show was very educational for kids of all grade levels. Our students were completely engaged and received a great deal of information about reptiles and were extremely entertained at the same time. It would be nice to bring them back! Some of these kids never get to see and touch reptiles. The Reptile Adventures Show was excellent and I will definitely recommend it to others!

The students and the staff were very engaged. One teacher even said, "That's the best show I've seen in my 20 years."

This is the second year in a row that we have selected the reptile show prize program. The students love it even if they have already seen them before. It is a wonderful idea from a school's stand point because it also gives an educational experience to our students.
