I think it would be a good idea to do a video. Children who are afraid of herps are less apt to get up and run away during your presentation. It'll give you a chance to have it done before hand. Plus, if you are wanting to get a whole ton of animals eating into a short amount of time...this will be very important. You could simply open your show introducing the "characters" in the movie, cut the lights, play the video, turn the lights on after finishing the video and let everyone know that they are welcome to come and meet your pets. Also, if you notice, children are roudy when the lights are on...but when they go off...they tend to calm down. I'm sure the teachers would appreciate some down time. Anyway! That's my two cents. Good luck!

Sam
