Year 2 ZooLab Visit March 2019

Zoolab Visit 

On Monday 18th March we had a visit from Zoolab as part of Science week. The children had the opportunity to find out about a range of unfamiliar animals; their habitats and special features and were lucky enough to be able to touch and hold some of them.  

The children were amazed to discover a frog that lives in a tree that changes colour to camouflage and hide from other animals. It needed to be sprayed with water to keep it hydrated as it drinks water through its skin. The tarantula was not a welcome visitor for some of the staff! Luckily, it was not allowed out of its carrier so we were all quite safe. Hissing cockroaches tickled our hands and sometimes climbed up our arms. They use their antenna to feel their way through caves and their favourite food is bat poo. The colourful corn snake lives in corn fields but doesn’t eat corn. It uses its tongue to feel its way around to find its favourite food, mice. 

It was a great experience and most of us were really brave and enjoyed touching and handling the animals. Even, Mrs Sewell held a cockroach!
