What We Do-
With a wide array of amazing animals, we are able to not only educate, but also entertain children of all ages. The Creature Teacher will bring an experience of a lifetime. We specialize in the following:
- Birthday Parties
- School Programs (classroom enrichment, after school, STEM or STEAM nights)
- Library Programs
- Corporate Events (touch table/come and go, employee and family events)
Tells us what you have in mind and we will work hard to fill your educational needs. Our birthday programs are for all ages (our oldest birthday boy was 81). Our school programs are meant to bring the pages to life. Why just read about the rainforest when you can have us deliver one to your class? Our corporate programs bring a unique opportunity for employees and their families to experience nature. The possibilities are endless. Contact us today and let’s talk about how we can bring life to your next event!

Why We Do What We Do-
We are passionate about animals and the people who love them. If a child grows up without ever experiencing the amazing beauty of the creatures that share this earth, how will they respect them as adults? We strive to not only educate children of all ages (yes, adults too) about our animals, but give them a better understanding of the importance of all creatures. From the smallest insect to the largest reptile, as creatures, we all have a purpose. We want to provide an appreciation of their existence.
And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. Genesis 1: 24
Many of our animals are rescues or pets in need of good homes. They are ALL loved by us and spoiled rotten! Our kangaroos are highly socialized and actually love sitting with us by the fireplace during the cold winter evenings. They all live in comfortable habitats, or in our yard. All of our animals do well around people. If we add a new animal ambassador that isn’t a good fit, they are retired from our program and found more suitable homes. We strive to protect the safety of the animal as well as those we allow to come in contact with them. Our animals don’t do tricks, they are for educational purposes only, and treated with love and respect. They are all amazing in their own way and will make you smile and sometimes laugh out loud! They are heartwarming and amazing. We love them and know you will too.
Why Book Your Event With The Creature Teacher?
That’s actually a great question! Anyone with a handful of animals can do animal programs. What sets us apart is that we do things the right way. We have a Class C Exhibitor’s license with the USDA. It is a legal requirement to have this license before showing any mammals for entertainment or education. Many businesses are operating without going through the proper channels. Anyone doing animal programs with mammals without the proper license can risk heavy fines and/or being shut down. The USDA inspects the licensees and makes sure that proper care, clean conditions, current vet visits, and detailed documentations are maintained. This oversight helps you rest assured that only healthy animals that are kept in clean habitats will be coming to your home, school, library, etc. Before you book with anyone, ask if they have the appropriate USDA license.
Another great reason for choosing The Creature Teacher is that all of our teachers have either Master of Education or Bachelor of Science degrees and are experienced in the teaching field. We are more than just a Google search. We have curriculum that enhances the learning potential of each child. We are familiar with the grade appropriate TEKS and encourage learning. We think that every moment can be a teachable moment. We aim for those that watch our programs to come away smarter than they were when we started!
And finally, all of our staff are background checked, dependable and professional. There are some things in life that are worth taking a gamble, but your child’s birthday, your school program, or your company event is not the time to leave things to chance. Because we have a full staff, we will always arrive as planned. We are also a local business, located in the DFW area. We have been around for over 20 years, so we must be doing something right!
We had The Creature Teacher come for my twin boys’ 6th birthday party and it was so amazing! The boys loved every minute of it and I know it will be a great lifelong memory for them that they got to have a baby kangaroo come to their bday party and that they got to hold a huge snake! Highly recommende

FunTips From The Creature Teacher:
I often get asked to recommend the best pet for children. One of my very favorites choices is the bearded dragon. They have great temperaments, are fun to watch eat, and are easy to care for if done correctly. My friends at The Critter Depot have put together a very informative guide to beardy care. Check it out!
