Now A Word From Your Sponsors...

Prehistoric Pets has worked closely with schools, churches and programs of all sorts to bring fun and first time experiences to the lives of children in our community.  From hosting parties for schools and scouts, to sponsoring teams and kids in special programs, we have had years of experience with giving back to our young ones!  Just recently, Prehistoric Pets/ The Reptile Zoo/ Jurassic Parties decided to sponsor the Boys Varsity soccer team from Environmental Charter High School in Lawndale, CA and had them visit the shop and Zoo after their last CIF playoff game this week.

The Environmental Charter School (ECS) is a school unlike our traditional public schools; in fact, it’s a free public charter school that operates independent of a traditional school district.  “The mission of Environmental Charter High School is to inspire students to discover their own sense of purpose, to equip all students with the knowledge and skills to graduate from college and to empower them to become quality stewards of their community and world.” quotes the home site for ECS.  On top of their challenging programs, students are required to use concepts and skills learned in class to problem-solve local civic and environmental matters, and take action to make an impact.   ECS extends learning beyond the classroom walls as they complete community service, participate in service learning projects, join outdoor education field trips, and are encouraged to take internships.  This is just a few of the things that make ECS so wonderful and unique, visit their website for more information!

The boys came in and visited us for the first time just this past weekend; they got to meet Frank, Twinkie, Willy and many more as they cruised thru the Zoo corridors and stopped by the photo booth to hold some cool reptiles!  They were accompanied by their coach and our fellow staffer, Daniel Pask who has been coaching the almost 20 member team for the entire season.  Some of the boys were psyched to check out the animals in the zoo while a few were ducking under their friends for cover from the “scurry snakey-do”! hee hee =P.  Thanks to our sponsorship, the team was able to afford NEW home and away jerseys! Congrats guys!   Visit our homepage for info on how YOU can become part of the Prehistoric Pets team!

Congratulations on making it to CIF playoff’s boys and thank you for visiting our store!  We look forward to more involvement in future programs and events for our community. 

Ciao!

Why not do everything at once??

 

As our SPOOKY Masquerade party is getting closer...Jay is eager to get as much renovation done as possible! 

We are still making progress on the alligator enclosure, cementing the finishing touches on the basin floor before we test water in it.  Its coming together quite smoothly and we are very excited to see the end result!

 

If any of you came in to Prehistoric Pets yesterday, you would have seen our newest renovation happening live!  We gave the old yucky floor behind our front counter a nice, attractive, THICK layer of cement as well.  Although our employees had to literally sit on the counter to fill orders while the floor dried, the result was worth it!

 

We are also continuing work on the new Caiman Lizard enclosure right inside the zoo.  It is looking fantastic!  Just look at how many people we need for this job...

 

Jay thinks these will be completed by our party date (Oct 30th)....what do you guys think??

 

With all the effort and hard work going into this...it can be done.  So make sure to attend our Spooky Costume Party at the Zoo (Sunday Oct 30th, 5-10pm) and see for yourselves!

The Reptile Zoo Party


The most basic party we have here at Prehistoric Pets is the Reptile Zoo Birthday Party. One of the favorites, it is always an interesting and unforgettable experience.





We have two party rooms to choose from, and info about each can be found on our website (click JP tab at top). You get an hour presentation with 12-15 animals, an hour in the party room of your choice, and admission to the zoo for 30 guests for $250. Your presenter aids you in set-up and clean-up as well, and you can bring any food, drinks, coolers, and decor that you like.





Photography is definitely allowed, and encouraged! There are SO many photo opportunities, and video is allowed as well. Your kids will not want it to end! Fears are overcome, new critter friends are made, and a wealth of reptilian knowledge is gained.





Also, we LOVE to see the creative CAKES that all of our hosts come up with. Most are homemade!!




If you have any questions at all, give us a ring...and book your Jurassic Party today!!
