Movies, Television, Commercials and Print

The Wild World of Animals has supplied animals for feature film, television, commercial and print ad work for 30 years. We have a large and diverse array of over 300 animals that we work with ranging from domestic and farm animals (cats, dogs, cows, horses, etc.), large carnivores (big cats, bears, hyenas, etc.), exotic hoof stock (zebras, camels, warthog, etc.), various other mammals (kangaroos, beaver, otter and many more), primates, birds of prey (hawks, owls, vulture), parrots, reptiles (alligators, venomous and non-venomous snakes, lizards, etc.), amphibians, arthropods and even fish and other aquatic creatures. If we do not have the animal ourselves, we have an extensive list of other trainers that we can contact. The only animals we cannot access are elephants and great apes.

In the current legislative environment, there are many state and federal laws that regulate the contact between talent and certain species of animals. This often dictates that there is NO contact between talent and certain species of animals that are considered potentially dangerous. Not surprisingly, examples of this would be adult carnivores and bears, as well as adult primates. In these situations, it is often necessary to do green screen or split screen shots involving talent and the animal. Safety and staying within the letter of the law are top concerns for us.

Every shoot is unique in its requirements so please contact us to see if we can help make your project work.
