Nicholas Jacinto grew up in Long Island’s Pine Barrens area and he was fascinated 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.
After achieving Bachelors’ degrees in Childhood Education, Special Education, and Speech Communications, Jacinto created his wildlife show, Nature Nick’s Animal Adventures with exotic species which had rarely before been seen in mobile animal shows.
Jacinto is a federally licensed master animal handler. His permits allow him to work with native wildlife, dangerous wildlife, and endangered species. He is also licensed to breed and propagate dwindling species.
Because of his unique qualifications and expertise, he is in demand as a consultant for zoos and wildlife centers, and he routinely works on TV shows and movies where exotic animals are required.
Touring 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.
