Adult animal experience

We had Scales and Tails visit Freya’s 5th Birthday Party today with some beasties and furry animals. She had a fantastic time holding the animals and learning all about them. Her friends were also very brave, some more than others �.
Thank you so much for making her birthday one to remember! Her favourite was Sherman the tortoise! So much so, she has asked for one of her very own!
Thanks again, a fab company, would definitely recommend them to all animal lovers, what a great party!

Party Review

Cannot rate this team highly enough. A fantastic company who REALLY care about their animals and inform the children how to treat them with respect and kindness. Informative, knowledgeable staff who make the experience fun and safe for all involved including their furry and scaley family members! Highly recommended without reservation.

Event Review

Thank you for my Sons 3rd birthday party, all the children were captivated with the whole thing, they loved asking questions and finding out as much as the hands on which was fab! The adults loved it as much as the children! Will be recommending and booking again as his sister has now said she would like a Scales n Tails party too! Thank you so much

Lincolns party

I would just like to say a huge thank you to ‘Scales and Tails’ for a fantastic, fun filled morning. Vikki brought some of her amazing animals into our primary school to visit our children, aged 4-11years. The children and staff were so excited when they came through the door to find the weird and wonderful animals waiting in their classroom to greet them good morning! Vikki was amazing with our young people and waited patiently whilst they generated their thoughts, ideas and questions. She had fantastic knowledge and lots of fun facts to answer their questions. It was immediately obvious how much these lovely animals are loved by Vikki and are clearly cared for and looked after to a high standard. We will definitley be using this company again and I would highly recommend them to anybody looking for a fun animal encounter!
On behalf of all of the staff and children, thank you very much!

Knowledge based on qualifications, husbandry experience and ability to engage with public. Encounters unlike others in the region. One of the few animal encounter companies in the UK I would personally recommend. They are that good! Dr Daniel Allen

Vikki and The Three Meerkatiers visited us at the Waddington Street Centre today for some arty antics!
The learners could not believe that we were getting “actual.. real life meerkats” in the Centre for them to practice their drawing skills.
We all had such a good time and everyone learned a great deal about meerkats during the process of drawing them.
It was just brilliant, I cant thank you enough.. it really will be the talk of the Centre for a long time to come!!

Waddington St Centre

We booked Scales and Tails for an Easter activity that we had planned on behalf of Dalton Park Shopping centre.  We were mainly interested in the fluffies as it was Easter and not the reptiles so not their usual set-up however they were really accommodating and Vikki was an absolute star!
On the day the team turned up with all of the kit they needed all we had to provide were a couple of table and chairs, they set up quickly and efficiently and without any fuss or drama and were ready for the event opening with plenty of time to spare.
Once the activity was in full swing the team ran the petting corner managing the queue of children who were all really keen to have their turn, they chatted with them and kept them amused until it was their turn to be seated.
Overall the event and the team were amazing and we would have no hesitation on working with them again

Hi Vikki,
just wanted to say thankyou for the fantastic fun and educational entertainment you provided for Harry’s party today.  We were really impressed and the kids (and Harry’s dad!) loved every minute.  You were recommended to us by a friend and we will definitely be recommending you for future parties.  Sophie is very keen to have you come back for her party, with Chinchillas and frogs!
Many Thanks again,
Elain

Just Fantastic !! We had a party with children ranging from 2 to 9 years and they were totally absorbed from start to finish. Scales n Tails really went the extra mile (including a little dinosaur outfit for their tortoise to fit in with our theme ) and were brilliant with the children. Also a huge thanks for being so great about having to reschedule party at the last minute due to my son being ill on his birthday. 5 Star
