Wildlife comes to you!

Delivering educational and unique wildlife shows to people of all ages around Melbourne, Victoria. 

FOR JAN 2024

Who we are

Love Me Like A Reptile is the of the party!   

We come to shows for children and adults alike, with a focus on the comfort and welfare of both humans and animals in our shows.

Get up close and personal with native wildlife and learn more about what we can do to care for the natural world. With every show we attend, we hope to create a kinder world for the animals that call Australia home. 

Love Me Like A Reptile is run by Olivia Knowles, who has been facilitating Animal Assisted Learning programs for children for twelve years and counting.

"Olivia has such a wonderful way with the kids getting to know and handle reptiles.She gives them enough information to keep them interested while also teaching them through touch. Importantly, they learnt respect for these beautiful animals too. "

Deanne, Northcote, 2019

"Your show was excellent and we were very impressed. (And I've seen a few in my time!) Your care for your animals was clear to see and the education aspect was great."

Brianna, Bellarine, 2022

"We had Olivia visit for my nephew's 7th birthday party. As an educator myself, Olivia has the presentation down pat; engaging, interactive and informative. The kids walked away not only grinning ear to ear, but inspired for future careers working with animals! "

Brendan, Donvale, 2022

“Thank you so so much Olivia for absolutely making my son's 5th birthday so special. He was so happy seeing all of your beautiful animals and your professionalism and gentle nature was exceptional. You may not have realised it but there were quite a few kids there with special needs and you made their day. Would 100% recommend your company in the future.”

Leslie, Templestowe, 2018

"Olivia engaged with the children so well, remembered their names and to our surprise even showed them some sign language for featured reptiles. The party has been the topic of discussion within the family and group of friends since the party three weeks ago!

We look forward to more parties in the coming years and would highly recommend Olivia's services to anyone."

Sally, Greensborough,2020

"I just wanted to say how awesome it was to meet you and how fantastic we thought the show was. Flynn has talked about it every day since.

From the way you talked about and handled your animals, it was really obvious that you love them, and that their welfare is first and foremost in your mind."

Nicole, Macclesfield, 2022

"[Olivia] was great with the kids, the animals were clearly well looked after, and she encouraged inquisitiveness about the reptiles. Very impressed and highly recommended."

Iain, St.Kilda, 2021

"Thank you so much for a great experience-such a pleasure seeing your fur and scale babies and all of us parents really appreciated the way you modelled and coached our kids when handling the animals."

Sinn, Thornbury, 2022

"Tom was so great, so patient and great with all the kids-as were the all the animals! Such a great time had by all! "

Brooke, Deer Park, 2022

"This lady knows her stuff and was not only entertaining and educational, but inspiring for the little lady reptile lovers in the crowd, particularly the birthday girl.

The immersive reptile/animal experiences she provided for the kids will be a memory they treasure forever."

Sarah, Hadfield, 2022
