I just wanted to say how much my class enjoyed your performance today at Accompsett Elementary School. They were talking about it all day! About the animals, how beautiful and amazing they were, how funny you were, etc. My kids liked it best, though that my parents’ nickname for me is Lulu, which turns out to be the same name as your kangaroo. : ) They talked about it all day! I never really saw kids have that kind of a reaction to an assembly before.. You were really amazing! I’d love to see the show again!
Well, thanks for coming out to Smithtown.
Sincerely, Lisa Matera, 2nd Grade Teacher

Just wanted to send you a note to say thanks for your show at Owen’s birthday party last week. All of the kids really, really enjoyed it and that’s equally true of the grown ups. You and your assistant did a great job – it was fun and funny and educational and all the things we all wanted. We were googling and searching YouTube for a laughing kookaburra and Fennec fox all weekend… Anyway, thanks again

“I recently hired Nicholas’ Animal Adventures for my daughter’s 6th birthday. It was an unbelievable party. Nicholas was prompt, thorough, highly knowledgeable, engaged both children and parents with facts and information about each animal, extremely personable and made my daughter’s birthday so incredibly special. The animals were fantastic and very clean. At the end of the party, I had at least 4 parents ask for Nicholas’ contact information for future engagements. I highly recommend Animal Adventures. It was a huge success with both the children and the parents!”

“We hired Nicholas Jacinto for our daughter’s 3rd birthday party.
He amazed us with an interesting and fun presentation of many rare and exotic animal species. Both kids and parents were truly captivated!
Nick’s knowledge of these animals and their backgrounds was very impressive -we learned some very interesting facts. He was friendly and courteous, and took the proper cleanliness measures. I highly recommend Nicholas Jacinto and hope to have him back next year.”

“It was such a pleasure working with Nicholas from Animal Adventures. Working with animals can be trying at times, as there are so many variable to keep in mind. Nicholas is a pro with his game and delivered seamlessly and professionally. And to top things off, his animals are so frickin’ cool and unique. Hire Nicholas, you will be glad you did!!!”
