son begged me to have a "Snake Party" for
his birthday... He had been to a friend's party with
lizards and various reptiles, but he thought a party
with snakes would be "way cooler". I
found Brian's website, and discovered he was local.
So we booked him for the party. Now all I had to do
was getting rid of my fear of snakes.
word got out that we were having Snakes, the list grew
much larger than I had expected. I had 30 kids and 8
snakes arriving in about an hour and I was panicking.
Brian arrived, the house was complete chaos. As soon
as he set up the table, you could hear a pin drop in
my living room. The kids were utterly fascinated. Brian
had the most terrific way of talking to the kids making
his presentation both interesting and educational. I
was absolutely impressed with his ability to handle
the big crowd, allowing each child individual time with
the snakes. It was a real hands-on experience for them
and I felt good knowing each one left more knowledgeable
about snakes than before.
party was a great success. I heard from parents for
several weeks afterward how much fun their child had
that day. Best of all, I am no longer afraid of snakes,
as I had quite a lot of hands on experience that day
highly recommend Brian Gundy and "For Goodness
Snakes" for your next party. It was a day to remember.

Invite Brian with his snakes to have an exceptional
Winter's New Home"
A Testimonial by Dalisay Delgado
Brian Gundy, for sharing your snakes and making it interesting
and fun for kids and adults. We had fun. Enrique ended
up getting a snake. Enrique named him "Mister Winter"
because it was during the cold spell when we brought
him home. We also appreciated your helpful advice regarding
Enrique's new pet! We heard that his friend, Dylan,
now has Mister Winter's brother!
"Coming Back for More"
A Testimonial by Susie Sage
Mr Gundy came to my son's 7th birthday in October 2009 and wowed the crowd of young boys with his beautiful snakes and huge wealth of knowledge. He spent the first 20 minutes of his visit educating the boys on all things related to snakes. They were all fascinated by all of the amazing snake facts and when it came to handling the snakes were respectful and gentle. My son, who is an avid snake lover was in heaven for the whole hour of having snakes draped around his shoulders often four at a time! When Big Mamma, the 40 pound Boa Constrictor made her entrance towards the end of the party, adults and children alike were in awe. The party went by way too quickly and my son is already talking about wanting Mr Gundy to come back for his 8th birthday party.
"Party of the Year"

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Brian Gundy. owner of For Goodness Snakes. Mr. Gundy provided a snake party for my son's birthday party on November 14,2009. Mr. Gundy brought at least 10 snakes and a special lizard to this party of 10 boys and two girls. aged eight to 10. Of particular interest was a boa constrictor of about 50#. Mr. Gundy has a very special way with kids, and was able to keep them entertained and wellbehaved as he talked about and displayed the snakes. While snakes are obviously a big attraction to any child, the party was greatly successful due to Mr. Gundy's ability to hold the children's attention while educating them about snakes. Adults and children alike learned a lot and just had a blast holding the snakes. At first, the children were very reluctant to even touch the snakes. as Mr. Gundy put them out on the table. However, as soon as one child picked up a snake, and as Mr. Gundy talked more and explained about snakes, pretty soon ALL the children and adults were holding snakes.
To tell you how popular this party was with my son, he kept running around the room saying, "This is the coolest party! This is the BEST!" We had many parents ask for Mr. Gundy's business card after the party, and would nominate this party for the "party of the year" award on our block.
As I mentioned earlier, the party was largely successful due to the way Mr. Gundy relates to children. He is very patient. kind, and answers their questions very seriously but also jokes around so that they have fun. He was able to teach them a lot about snakes, even though they could not get their eyes off the snakes the entire time. I would highly recommend For Goodness Snakes for any educational setting and would be especially proud to have Mr. Gundy come first to my son's school.
Please feel free to contact me through Mr. Gundy with any questions.
