Kids will love the chance to meet some of the animals we love to be scared by, and learn why they’re really not so creepy after all! Critterman will be visiting for an evening show open to the public at 7:15p on Thursday, February 22, as well as during the day for school groups. He is bringing a opossum, an American alligator, a great horned owl, a South American boa, a tarantula, and a vulture! Discover what important job each animal has in nature, and see that snakes are indeed our friends.

More About Critterman: In 1990, David and his wife, Susan, created Animal Edutainment Inc., a private, non-profit, professional, wildlife education outreach organization which develops and presents totally unique programs for youth. Their animal care facility is home to more than 50 non-releasable animals that were orphaned, injured, surplus or cast-off by previous owners.  These animals now act as ambassadors for their species.  The Klevens believe that if an animal is capable of living in the wild that is where it belongs.

Daytime shows for school groups are available. Ticket prices for Hastings area schools are $2 for both students and adults.  Out-of-area schools are $4 for both students and adults.  Call Visitor Services at 402-461-2399 to purchase tickets for school groups and for more information.
