 Snake Presenter Ed Does Live Snake Shows for Birthday Parties in Indiana


“Thank you for coming all the way to New Albany. The adults and students have been a buzz since you left! Your presentation was wonderful! Your knowledge of snakes and middle school students was obvious and valuable-plus your kindness showed through. I was so pleased to look at the awe struck expressions on my students’ faces! This was a great opportunity for my kids. They will remember the snake man long after they forget to balance a chemical equation! All my teachers want this to be an annual event. I will see you next year.”

Deborah Garrett, science teacher
Nathaniel Scribner Middle School
New Albany, IN.

“Thank you very much for bringing your wonderful collection of snakes. We can show videos of these creatures but there is nothing like the real thing! My class will remember this forever!”

Kristie Wright, 2nd grade teacher
Holy Name Catholic School
Beech Grove, IN

“Every year at our Spring Fling we like to have a show that not only entertains but also educates. This year we had “Snakehead Ed”. He gave three standing room only programs! We never had so many positive comments! Mr. Ferrer gives a wonderful show. His years of teaching experience have given him a unique ability to entertain yet educate his audiences to the wonder of snakes. We will definitely have “Snakehead Ed” back”.

Larry Kober, Westlake PTO

“Snakehead Ed’s” live snake shows are always a hit at the Children’s Museum! Regardless of day or time, his completive shows always draw a large and attentive crowd. He talks about snake’s features and behaviors, and includes snakes from around the world. “Snakehead Ed” always makes his shows as hands-on as possible. This not only helps people feel more comfortable around the animals, it also makes the experience more fun!”

Beth Stillabower, Science Works Interpretation Supervisor
Children’s Museum, Indianapolis, IN.

“Ed Ferrer has provided a variety of reptile programs at the Indiana State Museum in the R.B. Annis Naturalist’s Lab and at various public and student festivals as Reptile Days, Exotic Pets Weekend and Scales & Tails Fest. His level of expertise and experience as a school teacher allow him to entertain the youngest visitor or talk to a professional herpetologist.

Dave W. Fox, Visitor Program Coordinator, Indiana State Museum.


My scouts loved it! We will invite “Snakehead Ed” and his snakes back next year!”

Carl Peterson, Scout Master
Carmel, IN.

“I just wanted to thank you again for coming to talk to my scouts. All my scout leaders are calling me a hero for bringing you and your snakes this year. You have a great presentation style that kept my scouts well behaved and attentive. Great job!

Summer Camps

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving your time and energy to come to the Boys and Girls Club Super Summer Safari Science Camp. We value science and animal education and your program is a perfect fit! Your visit and talk was informative and fun. Our campers really enjoyed being close to the animals. Our staff was very impressed with your patience working with the students and your knowledge about snakes. Your program is one the kids will remember for a long time! We hope to have you back later this summer.

I just wanted you to know that Matt had the best time! He did not stop thanking us all night! Each of the boys said “That was the best Birthday Party I have ever been to!” as they left with their parents. You do a fantastic job! Thanks again.
