Hi There, I'm Arianna LeVine
owner of SafARI T.A.I.L.S (Teaching about Animals in Live Shows). We are a small family run business and share our home with many different types of exotic animals. Animals have always been a HUGE part of my life! My first word was “ish” for fish, not mom or dad. I grew up wanting to become a veterinarian. I continued this plan and went to college at The University of Southern Mississippi, where I got my bachelors in Biology and minor in Chemistry. While I took classes at USM I worked at a vet clinic and also did salamander research fieldwork with a graduate student. During this time I realized vet school or grad school wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do after all. I started working at a zoo and fell in love with doing educational shows. Steve Irwin was my hero growing up and I always said one day I wanted to be just like him, so I decided to start my own animal education program. I tell people who come to my shows that I may have a lot of what people consider the “cute and cuddly” animals, but my main goal, my main mission is to focus on the misunderstood! I absolutely love helping people overcome their fears of snakes, spiders, etc. Steve Irwin once said, “If we can teach people about wildlife, they will be touched. Share my wildlife with me. Because humans want to save things that they love”. I am happy to continue his mission by letting people get up close and personal with these amazing animals!
