"When we announce Reptilia's programs each year, they are oversubscribed in less than a morning. We wish we could have them in all our schools as they really help our students"

"Hi Cheryl,Many thanks again to you, Lee and Andre for your wonderful patience and enlightening discussions about my new friends - snakes! I am absolutely thrilled about holding both the ball python and corn snake. Considering I was paralyzed with fear in August you have performed a miracle for me!Of course Robbie thanks you, too. Now he doesn't have to listen to a screaming wife who's afraid of leaving the deck at the cottage!All the best to you. You guys are terrific!Thanks for everything"
"Just wanted to send a huge "thank you" out to all of you at Reptilia World for such an amazing birthday party! Our son, Brandon, who is a young budding naturalist and reptile lover, enjoyed the best party ever and our friends and family members also just thoroughly loved it!! Please extend a thank you to "Hayley"....She was awesome and made the day complete! Many, many thanks!"

"My son, Kienen, is attending Reptilia this week and is having the best experience. He has said that Reptilia has been the best camp he has ever been to. So much, in fact, we are canceling a camp he has booked in August so he can return to Reptilia again (Week 7 August 15-19). He has much praise for Camp Counselors Alex and Sam saying that are "awesome and fun counselors.Thank you and thanks to everyone at Reptilia who has contributed to making this a fun and educational experience for these kids - not only are they having a blast, they are learning and taking part in something that is of interest to them. We will even be adopting a leopard gecko by summer's end!Please pass on our compliments and appreciation to all staff involved, especially Sam and Alex (who I did commend this morning) on jobs well done...we'll see you again in August!!Many thanks."

"If we could have it our way as educators, we'd like one in every school. Our kids need resources, and our teachers need resources to help meet those curriculum lengths. Hands on science and hands on teaching in the classroom...Kids work effectively, they bond together and they are happier in the classroom in general, with an animal, reptile or pet...Each teacher is looking for as many resources as they can get in the classroom. A resource as rich as this one is always going to be top of their list..."

"I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in the planning of Reptilia's visit to our elementary school St. Matthias. Your Reptilian Educator, Ryan, was fabulous with the kids. He made all the presentations fun and enjoyable while learning at the same time. I received excellent comments from all the teachers about his presentation. Our students had a great day with Reptilia!!!! Thank You and wishing you both a fabulous summer."

"Hi There, My name is Sharon and I am Nathan Simone’s grandmother. On Sunday December 18th I was at Nathan’s birthday party where he had Reptilia as his guest. I need to mention that the young gentleman who put on the very informative display of reptiles ”Ryan” was just super. He was great with the kids. He held their attention throughout and the kids and adults alike found that the presentation was very informative and interesting. If you can keep 12 kids from ages 1 ½ to 10 years of age interested, for any length of time, he is a keeper. I would definitely recommend Reptilia to anyone having a party. Thanks again Ryan."
"Good morning! This email is a little late, we've been so busy, but better late than never. My husband & I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to a job well done, the Reptilia host was Patrick, and he was AMAZING, he went beyond our expectations, and he was EXCELLENT w/the kids, knew exactly what to do to get their attention and have them under control, which is a little difficult at times with a bunch of 6yr olds;) Patrick seems to be a bit of a celebrity, as my sister recognized him from a Reptilia demonstration at Ontario Place. He should get a rai$e, and hope he's being well paid, as he truly has a gift, and takes his job seriously, very professional and arrived early. I would definitely recommend this idea to other parents, and that day many of the parents asked for more info, nothing like free word of mouth advertising:) Thank you again, for making our daughter's special day, EXTRA special, everyone enjoyed the show!!! Merry Christmas! PS: my daughter is enrolled in the day camp for Jan.2nd (deal thru Groupon), she is so looking forward to it!!"
