Remarkable Reptiles
  Remarkable Reptiles | James Gerholdt  

The park I work for has hired Jim Gerholdt for over twenty years. We continue to have him as a guest speaker year after year because he always draws a large crowd of engaged visitors. Audience members of all ages are involved and laughing throughout the Remarkable Reptiles program. In the decade I have known Jim, I've enjoyed seeing his show around a dozen times. My interest in reptiles has grown in large part due to Jim, so much so that I now have a turtle and snake that I use for my own programs. Jim is very knowledgeable and his passion for reptiles is contagious.

My name is Jill Olson and I am the State Wide Eco Ed Coordinator for North Dakota. For the last 2 years I have had Jim Gerholdt "Remarkable Reptiles" perform at many of my Eco Ed camps across the state. Jim is extremely accommodating, easy to work with and very knowledgeable of his reptiles. His ability to interact with his audience is fabulous. I highly recommend Jim and his reptiles for an enjoyable show!


Our public library has been booking Remarkable Reptiles as part of our summer reading program for five years and the crowds get bigger every year. Jim does a good job of mixing education and fun. Kids of all ages love the chance to see and even touch the wide variety of reptiles.

I am honored to be able to provide this endorsement of Remarkable Reptile’s educational programs!

We have been using Remarkable Reptiles for over 20 years to educate and entertain our audiences of all ages.. The programs are high energy, fun, and full of up-to-date scientific information about reptiles and the environment. Jim Gerholdt’s balance of narrative and live animals keeps everyone engaged throughout the program. He includes experiential learning to reach even the disenfranchised learners.

His animals are extremely well cared for, and provide a firsthand opportunity to understand local ecosystems and our opportunities to enjoy it. Reptiles can be found in urban as well as rural settings, so his programs offer urban youth a chance to explore their own neighborhoods in search of learning.

I highly recommend anyone from schools K-12, adult learners, scouts, birthday parties and any other gathering in search of a presenter to include this gem for a once in a lifetime experience!

Jim has brought his amazing reptiles to my class for many years now. Jim has literally spent his whole life learning about and working with reptiles. As a result, he is truly an expert. Perhaps more important than this is his passion for these creatures. Students cannot help but be caught up in his excitement. His visit has always been a highlight of my class and I would absolutely give him 5 stars.

Jim, with The Remarkable Reptiles, is engaging with students, carries a wealth of experience, and is a staple in having my juniors and seniors learn about reptile husbandry and conservation. I love having him come to my classrooms every year. 5 stars.

Jim Gerholdt has been the featured speaker at our 5th GradeEnvironmental Day Camp for the past 14 years. His reptile program always brings out amazement from not only the students but teachers as well. Jim shows up early and is always eager to put on a great interactive show for the kids. Rain or shine he is always the highlight of our day camp and we hope he keeps coming back for many years to come.
