We do promise that our donation request is nominal and is way below average presenters fees.  Education is and always will be our goal.  

Below is our new donation guideline for educational programs.  Pricing is for 20 mile travel distance from zip code 47403.  Further travel distances require an additional donation of $1.00 per mile, round trip:

Schools (individual classrooms) and Day Cares: $35 per hour with one hour minimum

Libraries and School Events: Assemblies,Carnivals, Science Nights, and so forth: $50 per hour, one hour minimum

Birthday Parties: $125 for the first hour, $70 for each additional.

 Special Event: If you have an event that you'd like to have an awesome group of reptiles to liven up for you, let us know!  We'll need to know the type of events, time needed, and location.  We will calculate the donation required based on the event type (educational, recreational, fundraiser, etc.).

Please, donate & help our critters get a larger and more permanent home! Every little bit helps - $5, $10, $25...whatever! It all adds up!  Please share this with others. Thank you so very much for your support.


Scaly Tailz needs YOUR help!  Currently, the animals are housed in Sheryl Mitchell's rental.  Unfortunately, her complex was sold, and the new owners do NOT like her reptiles!  Scaly Tailz needs to raise funding to set up it's own location.  PLEASE, check out and donate at our Crowd Rise campaign, at:   PLEASE share this site with others!  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

*If you, or someone you know of, has a heated space that Scaly Tailz would be able to house their animals in (shed, garage, spare room, basement, or so forth), Scaly Tailz will pay for any and all utilities used (water, electric, gas).  Thank you!
