Best Houston Animal Entertainers for Kids Birthday Parties
These folks have more than three decades of experience under their belts. You can have a full-size petting zoo delivered to your party (along with qualified staff) as well as ponies, and even an adorable train that takes the kids for a quick ride around the street or parking lot, depending on your party's location. Petting zoos for parties include more than a dozen animals, including llamas, piglets, lambs, goats, ducks, chickens, a mini donkey, and bunnies, to name a few. As yes, even if you live in the heart of Houston, these animals are allowed because they are not permanent residents. Prices are based on location and need and are subject to change, so call for current numbers.

The founder of Texas Snakes is a long-time (one could say lifetime) snake enthusiast and native Houstonian, and the company has years of entertaining experience. Along with the animals themselves, Texas Snakes also sells snake-themed party favors and has fun cake ideas to make the planning process all the easier. The team usually brings eight snakes and a turtle, and all are non-venomous. The kids are allowed to interact with all of the animals. Prices are based on party location, but you can expect to spend around $225 - $275 along with a $50 non-refundable deposit.
There is no shortage of animals to pick from at Incredible Events. Among the more affordable, party-friendly options is the petting zoo, both traditional (baby farm animals) and exotic, bird shows, camel rides, "unicorn" visits, and monkey shows. The company is essentially a one-stop-shop for party rentals, as it also rents out DJs, characters like princesses, and inflatables. Prices vary depending on location and package - call for pricing.
