Nature Nick's Animal Adventures

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, and 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.

After achieving Bachelor’s degrees in Childhood Education, Special Education, and Speech Communications, Jacinto created his wildlife show entitled Nature Nick’s Animal Adventures. His formal training and long-time friendship with Morrone allowed him to secure exotic species which had rarely before been seen in mobile animal shows.

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, and 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.

Between a brutal touring schedule, Nick and his wife Maria split their time between a home in Long Island New York and Vero Beach Florida.
