Eric, aka “The Reptile Man” is the strong and quiet type, and the one who handles our largest animals, (pictured above with Casper) as well as our scariest ones such as the tarantulas and the scorpions!

Emily Erickson - TEAM PYTHONFounder, Performer
Emily (pictured above with Draco) is the backbone of the team, the one who started the business! Without Emily we would not have a show. This young lady is very knowledgeable about the animals we work with and has been handling reptiles for over 12 years! (At 21 years old, that’s saying something!)

This is Eryn. She is Jack’s daughter ( one of our other assistants). She is a strong, smart and sassy young lady. She has been working with these animals since she was 8. She still won’t touch some things, like the tarantulas but it is still pretty impressive for her age. She helps with a lot of shows and is a pleasure to work with.
