When I heard about former Kindergarten teacher, Tracy Hill, “the animal guy”, and his performance at birthday parties, I knew I should share. Operating under the name “Fur, Scales, and Tails”, Tracy will bring his menagerie to your house for a birthday party, which he says is appropriate for kids of all ages.
The animals in his posse include baby chicks, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, turtles, snakes, ducks, tortoises, lizards, tarantulas, roosters, giant millipedes, frogs, chickens, and… hairless rats! Each show features 17 animals.
What you get: A high-energy demonstration for about 40 minutes, followed by ten or fifteen minutes of petting, holding and picture-taking sessions. The show can take place indoors or outdoors as long as sufficient shade is available.
What it costs: $185 in the 510 area code with no upper limit on the number of children and adults who can watch and participate. Visits to Marin, San Francisco and the nearest parts of the South Bay cost $195.
How to arrange: Tracy welcomes email inquiries, phone calls, and text messages! See his website for contact info.
