Welcome to the Rent a Beast website. The orignal site of renting out minibeasts!!!

We really do love all creatures great and small and we LOVE to share our enthusiam and knowledge about our leggy and slimy friends. We pride ourselves on the high standard of our teaching practice and our emphasism on correct animal welfare.

Let's inspire the next generation.





Bradwell Primary School

Over the past few weeks Carrie and Nikki from Rent-a-Beast have brought an impressive selection of creepy crawlies to visit our Bug Club at Bradwell County Primary School. The children have been captivated by the incredible insects and have particularly enjoyed the hands on nature of the sessions. Each weekly session has been exciting and informative and the children are always buzzing throughout (and for the rest of the week until the next session comes around). Carrie and Nikki are naturals when it comes to passing on their obvious passion for the bugs and have left our children with a new found respect for the fascinating creatures they have met and learned about. We couldn’t recommend Rent-a-Beast highly enough. Perfect if you are looking for an after school club that is educational, exciting and most importantly great fun!

We met Carrie hosting a friends party and booked our own shortly after. Carries great for all ages. We have since been to a holiday bug club and I will book her again soon. She really puts the children at ease with the mini beasts, and adults!! She comes very highly recommended by myself!
