With a wide array of amazing animals, we are able to not only educate, but also entertain children of all ages. Whether it’s for a birthday party, summer reading program, school enrichment, class instruction, VBS, festival or corporate event, The Creature Teacher will bring an experience of a lifetime. Children and adults alike will be amazed how incredible the various animals are when they are up close and personal.

 

Our professional staff members are courteous and entertaining. They will introduce you to each species, share important facts about each creature, and leave you with a new appreciation for these animals. The Creature Teacher has been offering educational animal programs and parties in the Dallas and surrounding areas for over 18 years. Wildlife education is our specialty!

Look who is new!!

KOSMO THE KANGAROO

Jaxx the big red kangaroo was our newest addition in June of 2015. Now, Jaxx is a big boy.  He’s not a joey, he’s a boomer (adult male red roo) and weighs almost 90 pounds.  We thought is was time to bring in a new (smaller) kangaroo, so we added Kosmo the baby joey kangaroo.  He will melt your heart!!

Don’t worry, Jaxx isn’t retiring.  He’s not available for birthdays, but is still around for special programs!

We also added two new educators, Jon Bjornen (University of Hawaii grad, Marine Biology) and Lauren Hoover (Baylor University grad, Health Science) last year.  This year we welcome Kaleb Henry (Master’s Geology program SFA).   Welcome aboard!!

 

            

 

QUITO THE KINKAJOU

Baby season is here! Just in time for our 2017 Summer Reading Program titled South American Safari, we have added a new baby kinkajou named Quito.  With his adorable pink nose and cute little prehensile tail, he has been winning hearts. He loves bananas and we are bananas over HIM!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

TEDDY THE TEGU

For those reptile lovers, we have your guy!  Introducing Teddy the Tegu.  This black and white Argentine Tegu is around 4′ long and is still growing!  He will get over 6′ long.  Check out that monster tongue! He looks a little like an alligator walking across the room, but he’s actually just a teddy bear (hence the name, get it?).  He’s a little too big for small ones to hold, but he’s impressive to see.  Let us know if you want us to bring this giant South American lizard to your next event.
