We are passionate about all animals and have a range of skills, knowledge, understanding and qualifications in animal care and teaching to give you the best possible service that you require . We are professional in our approach yet friendly and will listen to and carry out your requirements.

 Pets, livestock, zoo animals and wildlife..... we love them all!

Pet Sitting and Small Animal Boarding

Regular, occasional and one off pet sitting services are available to meet the needs of you and your animals (invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds). Our bespoke packages can include feeding, watering, exercising (walking), cleaning of enclosures, play and grooming. We also provide home security by turning lights on and off, bringing in newspapers and mail, closing and opening curtains. We can even water your plants.

It's A Bug's World ~ Exhibitions and Displays

Our informal, educational and entertaining exhibitions and displays, when hosted by us, are provided with free entry within the local communities. Suitable for children who enjoy nature and for aspiring entomologists and herpetologists.

Our exhibitions and displays are easily adaptable to meet the needs of the audience with an array of fascinating facts and figures, pictures and even live animals which can attend your fete, fayre or other event too!

Animal Handling Experiences

We love to make these fun and entertaining for all. Our invertebrates ("creepy crawlies") and other animals are always ready and waiting to meet new people at parties, in schools, groups and in care homes. You will get to meet an array of animals, learn about them, find out what they would be like in the wild and what they are like as pets at home..
