Animal Encounter



Animal Encounter Programs are a unique and educational experience for groups of all sizes and ages! During the presentation, professional handlers will show animals from Living Treasures “Wild” Animal Park and share information about them. Standard show lengths are one hour but may be customized to fit your needs. Multiple shows can be performed for large groups who need to rotate guests. Eight species of animals will be brought to your event.

Typical species may include a:

  • Green winged macaw
  • Three-banded armadillo
  • African pygmy hedgehog
  • Alligator snapping turtle
  • Cane toad
  • Red kangaroo or Bennett’s wallaby joey
  • American alligator
  • Ball python
  • Or other suitable animals.

If desired, petting and pictures with the animals will be permitted when it is safe to do so.

For the health and safety of our animals, we can never guarantee that one specific animal or species will be available for your program.


Programs are available on any day from January 1st to March 31st.

The maximum program length available per day is five hours to keep our animals comfortable. Programs must be located within 100 miles of our park address. Overnight stays for multiple day bookings are not available. Handlers will travel from and return to the park each day.


  • Programs are covered by the park’s liability insurance.
  • Payment is due no later than the day of the program(s). Full refunds are only available if the program is cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the event.
  • We will provide a headset microphone for our staff if necessary.
  • Presentations must be in a climate controlled area between 60 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • The animals must also have adequate space (approximately 5’ X 10’) where they can be kept away from any presentation viewers during the duration of the program(s).
  • If the presentation area is carpeted, a vacuum cleaner must be provided for our staff during clean up.
  • Handlers will provide full set up and clean up. They will arrive early and stay later than your event time at no extra cost to provide this service.
  • These prices and options are only valid for the Moraine location.
  • Any prices quoted may be adjusted in future seasons. Prices are locked in once the contract is signed and returned.
