This educational 1-hour lecture features an exotic mix of furry, feathered, and scaly critters for animal lovers to enjoy. Parrots will soar, snakes will slither, and hedgehogs will hedge as your party or event learns hands-on about the animals, where they come from, and where their favorite place to be scratched is.

The children loved the animal show that Mobile Zoo performed at our school. The handlers were kind and patient and very knowledgeable about all the animals they displayed. I am very pleased with Mobile Zoo an look forward to having them come to our school many more times.
My daughter turned 8 and wanted a animal show where she could hold and pet some cuddly creatures. MobileZoo did an amazing job. She showed up on time and left no mess. The presenter was the owner and she was wonderful with both the animals and the kids. She brought out 9 different animals- a beautiful bird, bunny, chinchilla, hedgehog, guinea pig, bearded dragon, tortoise, snake, spider, iguana, and one more I think! Would totally hire them again.
Nancy was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, kind and passionate about what she does. The kids loved all the animals & she did a great job taking questions & sharing each animal with the kids. There was a buzzing/feedback on her end- that was the only thing that wasnt ideal. But to be honest, I dont think the kids really cared! But I hope its resolved for future events.
Had a great experience with Mobile Zoo of Southern California. They showed up right on time, setup, and had a great bunch of critters full of personality. One of the chickens even laid an egg for us! We had a blast!
Thank you Nick for your awesome review! So glad you enjoyed our friendly animals and even better, they gave you a special gift. I will pass your praises along to Josh. So happy you enjoyed our services. Again, thank you!. Kind regards, The Zoo Crew Team.
Theres a zoo show then theres THEIR zoo show! Erin was so friendly and outgoing and really captivated the entire audience of small children (my 2 yr old birthday boy) to grandparents! We had the best time! We did a 90 min show and we enjoyed the extra time for her to bring out the animals again for those who missed the first showing and she really got to mix and mingle with the animals. So much fun! I will admit the little kids got antsy about halfway through but other than that, the rest of us had the best time!
The kids at our family gathering got to "see-touch-feel" all the creatures and it was very exciting and educational for them. The attendant came dressed in a safari outfit and really fit the part. He was patient and very knowledgeable about all the creatures!! Was great!! Highly recommend!!
Dear Julie, Thank you for your kind words and praises! We will share them with Mark. So happy to hear, you enjoyed our show and your families had a memorable experience with our Critters and Mark. Again, thank you. We appreciate your business! Kind regards, Pati
Mobile zoo was able to provide us with a pony that was perfect for our occasion. We had a party for senior adults and everyone including the staff were able to enjoy the pony provided. Would definitely book again.
We had the Mobile Zoo come out to our Purim (Jewish holiday) party last night to entertain the families of our Synagogue!! They were amazing!! From the professionalism and knowledge of the animals, to their interaction with the audience, they were incredible! I highly recommend them for your next event!! It was such a pleasure to work with this company from the first interaction through last night! Thank you, GigSalad, and thank you Mobile Zoo of Southern California!!
I surprised my niece with the pony rental for her birthday and it was a hit! Not only did my niece have a great time, but all the other guests did too! I must also add that that pony handler was accommodating, punctual and great with the kids. Thank you!
We had boys and girls from age 3 - 10 and everyone loved the petting zoo. Erin was very friendly and was great at helping the kids interact with all of the animals safely. All of the animals (even the pig and the goats) were used to being around people, and used to being petted. I highly recommend hiring Mobile Zoo!
Nancy from the main office was amazing. Her customer service, flexibility and response time was on point. She answered the business line, her cell and responded to emails within a 15 minute period. Godfrey, the animal host was courteous, professional and very knowledgeable about all the animals. And last but not least, the animals were adorable, friendly, healthy and a huge hit for my tenant event. I am so happy I went with Mobile Petting Zoo of Southern California.
The animals were great, the handler, not so. He wasn't "kid friendly"; got rude if a child asked the same question that had been asked. Arrived 30 mins late due to traffic (can be challenging on Fri. nights). The handler was not aware of how Gig Salad handles payment and got rude with our volunteer when he went to give him what we thought was a generous tip, thinking that was all we were paying him for the evening. Mobile Zoo should have explained to him that payment is up front, then deducted after a successful event. We thought the price was very reasonable for the amount of time we wanted but handler should have been better informed and have a passion for kids as well as animals.
Our Costume Carnival was a blast and the Mobile Zoo made it extra special for the kids. They were right on time, efficient in setting up, attentive throughout the day, and very professional. All in all, I highly recommend them!
The Mobile Zoo petting zoo provided the BEST party experience for our 1 year old Birthday Farm Party!!! Gentle, adorable animals and professional service (baby pig was a crowd sensation!!!!) Thank you!
We had a fantastic in house field trip with the Mobile Zoo. The animals were adorable and so very patient with our kids, and their handler was knowledgeable and kind. Every child who left the school yesterday could not stop talking to their parents about the animals. I look forward to many more visits from Mobile Zoo.
The Mobile Zoo of Southern California was great to work with. They responded quickly to my request for information, they were on time to the event, and brought a great assortment of animals, catering their program to our needs. The kids with an age range of 3 years old- 6th grade (plus parents) all enjoyed the show.
My daughters 2nd birthday was so great thanks to Mobile Zoo So Cal. The attendant was great with the kids and very friendly. The adults even had fun seeing the animal's up close and personal. The kids that were a Lil scared still enjoyed it as well from the outside of the pen. Overall everyone had a great time. I will definitely recommend them to anyone who asks. Side note: 2 hrs of time is not really needed for small kids they get distracted easily. 1 hr could be enough if everyone comes in time.
Loved Jojo the Cockatoo who was great even though she didn't like my husband as much as me. The other parrot was scared and antisocial. Ferret never made it and Chinchilla was nippy and never came out only a few guinea pigs? Troy, animal handler, Was great and very friendly!
The kids had an amazing time with all of the petting zoo animals and pony! The workers were really friendly and patient with the children. The animals were all very well behaved and looked clean and healthy. I would highly recommend them!
We were more that thrilled with our experience today!!!! The staff was patient, kind, courteous and engaging. The animals were clean, friendly and a joy to have. Kids of all ages and adults enjoyed the petting zoo interaction and the little ones loved the pony rides, the pony was so sweet
This was an experience the children and adults will never forget about. Everyone talked about it for days. Nancy was awesome. So friendly, knowledgeable, and great with the children. This was such a fun addition to our party. The interaction with the animals went way beyond just a petting zoo! I would highly recommend. Thank you!!!
Mobile Zoo of Southern California is a must for any children's birthday party. They are professional hard working and very sweet people that have fabulous animals. They brought a wide range of kid friendly animals that were so well behaved that they were able to join our party out of their pen. Ducks swam in the kiddy pool etc. kids and parents loved it. I will definitely use them and recommend them again.
The van pulled up and we were so excited, the animals were friendly and the staff professional, nice a full of smiles. He put up some shade, gave the animals some hay. The children had a great time. He cleaned up afterward. Will call out again!!!
This was an experience that we will always remember. The attendant, sorry don't remember her name? was pleasant to deal with and very attentive to those who saw the animals. would recommend to others. tks
