    Truly enjoyed the experience, Michael has a gift for teaching and a deep love for the wildlife that surrounds us.
    I don’t think anyone at the show didn’t walk away having learned something and it was such fun to watch him help everyone overcome their initial fears.

    Took my kids to the kojonup show today. And had the absolute pleasure of the critters on display. The enthusiasm was amazing. I love there was no dumbing down! The kids really experienced the animals but still with respect for them. Brilliant. And I think we took a big step forwards with our snake fears withvthe gorgeous python. Thank you so much. Definitely our highlight for today.

    we felt great to attend Micheal’s critters up close at Armadale. My children were mesmerised not only by seeing the animals but the wonderful presentation of Micheal. We attended 3 sessions and those were so informative and enthusiastic. critters up close is really wildly educational. 
    your work is really appreciated , Mr.Micheal.

    Today we caught the end of your presentation at Armadale shopping centre. It was amazing, my son who is normally very shy and reserved took a huge interest in the snake Michael was holding. Michael took the time to talk to him about snakes and encouraged my son to touch the snake and pop it around his neck. It was a very cool experience and one I never thought I would see him participate in. Michael was so wonderful with each and every child that was there and gave his whole attention to that child. I would see these guys again in a heart beat. Thank you very much Michael for making my little Spider-Man’s day. All the best and keep up the wonderful work.
