I saw some post of Ichazod asking about bats and some others refering to skunks etc.

At home I have two pet snakes, and at some point I want to add them to my performance.

Does any of you know someone who uses snakes in their magic?

Maybe a suggestion on a routine?

What other animals are used by magicians?

I first reply on myself, because I know already about magicians using different kinds of small birds, duck/goose (also a bird, I know). D.C. uses a scorpion.

But I can not really come up with anything else.

Snakes are not my thing either....yuck! However I did see a Vegas magician produce a python once....I think it was a tip over box. Other animals, besides rabbits and ducks, that I have seen used, or know for a fact have been used:



Parrots, Cockatiels, Dogs of all sizes, ponies, elephants, tigers, lions, lynx, donkey, chicks. That would be most of them.

Jonathan David Bass uses a snake. If you have ever seen Worlds Greatest Magic IV he's on it and he produces it in his act.

Thanks for the replies.

In the mean time I came up with alot of the animals myself.

Ok "a Vegas guy" is to vage to check out.

And about me liking snakes.

I have snakes for 10 years now. My first snake I saw was in Greece when I was about 5, I caught my first snake when I was about 9 (Hungary) and since then I’m intrigued by these leggless, mysterious animals.

I think it’s maybe a little like magic. People are just scared, amazed by things they know to little about.

For those who don’t like snakes.

Come to my show and I’ll learn you to like the unliked. (ok, I first need a show)

Ali Kabah (Jerry Holmes) in Sydney Australia worked around Australia and the USA with his Yogi act, muscle control, eating light bulbs, glasses etc and did magic tricks in between the Yogi stuff.
He produced a large python from in the audience I believe. Once seen, never forgotten.
He was introduced on to an Australian version of the television show, "Opportunity Knocks" by Les Levante and did the thread from the stomach. The show was dropped after that.
Might have been better to use the python!
This is not a knock at Ali. I enjoyed their act and he and his wife were very nice people.

I was watching a special on TLC last week and the special was on 'Working Animals' It featured about 3 or 4 Magicians who work with animals in their shows. One was on a birthday magician...sorry I don't recall his name, One was an illusionist 'Claude Haggerty'...and the third on was on a magician in India...again I can't recall his name, but I had never heard of him, anyway he produced a large python in what appeared to be a giant square circle, he also produced a Cobra(thats right a Cobra) out of a dove pan!

The cobra would work in India, but for most of us a cobra had better be fabric and on a spring and be finding a card in a snake basket. The cobra is just about as scary a snake as one can find. If one of those hooded wonders appears in a live show I am watching, this is one duck who is gonna move like roadrunner. Also, last week in the paper there was an AP story of a regular fellow on the east coast who was murdered by his "pet" python. The snake loved him too much and squeezed a bit too tight around the neck. The snake was a few feet longer that local law allowed but the fellow died as police and firefighters tried to revive him.

I recall seeing Melinda do some sort of illusion or escape using snakes. And I agree, I dislike the slithering little things as well. Smile

I used parakeetes in with my dove act years ago. Very easy to train, and lots of magical things you can do with them.

I have an Australian Bearded Dragon that I've been thinking of incorporating somehow into my children's show. He's very docile and friendly. I think it might be fun to produce an actual "Norbert" at the end for kids to see up close...

Any old magician can pull a rabbit out of a hat!... Smile

A thirty-five pound rabbit to boot, which is 3 times the side of the hat!

This year I am using a cornsnake, 2 ball pythons, an emperor scorpion, a rosehair tarantula, and two doves. I love using snakes - they don't have hair, they rarely go to the bathroom, they LIKE to sit in small dark places, and the kids love them. I have thought about getting a chinchilla, but I heard that they don't sweat and they can overheat very easily. Living in GA and performing during the summer may be a little to warm for the furry guys - they are cool though.
