Many creatures are simply misunderstood. Just because they're a little creepy, a little crawly, or perhaps just a bit slimy and prone to swallowing mice whole, some people get frightened. But when a child touches their first tarantula, stares a crestie gecko in its big orange eye, or feels the soothing wrap of a python, those fears flourish into open-eyed wonder and fascination that can't be leashed. Since 2002, Deb's Dragons has been inciting the awe of Greater Arizona and Southern California residents with their menagerie of exotic species culled from six continents. In interactive shows that entrance all ages, they liven up events such as birthday parities, classroom assemblies, and even corporate and team building exercises. Every showcase of lizards, bugs, dragons, constrictors, and tortoises is steered by informative wranglers who illuminate the creature's wonders and dispel misconceptions about why hissing cockroaches hiss and why gopher snakes snub moles at parties.
