Welcome to!

Daryl Sprout is a noted and experienced Herpetological Humorist. Yes, the name sounds like he should be a Botanist instead, but go figure. He does a variety of shows and presentations for corporate events of all types and sizes that provide the very best answer to the question, "What can we do this time that is really different?"

As Senior Field Herpetologist for Snake Removal, the only nationwide company that specializes exclusively in snakes, he's acquired quite an amazing range of experiences that translate into riveting stories and hilarious insights.

You may recall the big news frenzy in April and May of 2004 concerning the cobra that was loose in Dallas and the expert they called in to deal with the problem... yep, you guessed it. A quick Google search on the name Daryl Sprout will tell you quite a bit more about who he is.

As owner of Snake Encounters, he has over 18 years under his belt, doing live presentations for corporate events, parties, museums, libraries, schools and Animal Planet promotional functions. With an extensive background on the stage, he's an experienced actor, speaker and comedian as well as an accomplished magician.

Comedy, magic, storytelling, education and 17 different snakes from around the world add up to a whirlwind experience that is fast-paced, electric and enormous fun. He has a perfect 18 year safety record, and while a couple of his animals look venomous and a couple more act like dangerous vipers, all are just effective mimics. You get great excitement with zero risk.

This show has an amazing track record of using humor and amazingly beautiful snakes to break down barriers, enabling audience members to conquer this learned and unnecessary fear which for some is one of the most empowering and motivational experiences that life has to offer.

In circumstances where the presence of live animals is problematic, this subject matter is just as inspiring and entertaining when done as a motivational speaking presentation. This format includes storytelling, magic, comedy and the kind of imparted knowledge that is power when it comes to this topic - and the many aspects of professional life to which it relates.
