Richard “The Oregon Reptile Man” was bitten in 1970. Not literally, but by the bite of extreme curiosity concerning the natural world, and it’s seemingly infinite colors, patterns, and abilities in the reptile realm.

Established in 1991, The Reptile Man utilizes over 60 exotic reptiles from around the world as educational ambassadors to nearly 500 organizations yearly.

The majority of our reptiles are obtained from local police and animal control agencies, and have found their way into TV commercials, the movie industry, as well as humane training tools known as “Rattlesnake Aversion Training” for over 100 hunting dogs yearly.

If we remove live animals from humans consciousness, eyes, and other senses, animals will eventually be removed from the earth as well. For love, respect, compassion, and knowledge rises from such experiences, and continues to evolve into conservation efforts in all its various forms.

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 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.

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.
