About the Event
Growing up in the pine barrens of Eastern Long Island, Nicholas Jacinto has always had a fascination with the natural world. By age 5, he was collecting box turtles and snakes in vivariums set up in his bedroom. By 10, his collection grew to include birds, ferrets, chinchillas, rabbits, fish, & reptiles. By age 14, he caught the eye of international animal expert, Marc Morrone, who immediately cast him on an animal segment of The Martha Stewart Living Show.
Jacinto is now a federally licensed master animal handler. His permits now allow him to work with native wildlife, dangerous wildlife, and endangered species. He is also licensed to breed and propagate dwindling species. His unique qualifications and expertise has put him high in demand as a consultant for zoos, wildlife centers, and he routinely works on any TV shows and movies where exotic animals are needed.
Touring the country in a custom RV, he and his menagerie frequently appear at fairs, expos, nature centers, schools, libraries, across the country. He is regularly highlighted on TV programs such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, & Pix 11 News. He is the resident animal expert for Good Day New York.
