How wonderful – as part of their topic on the Rain Forest, Mrs McFetridge and Mr Crawford arranged a great treat for their classes – a visit from some animals. Granted, not necessarily Rain Forest animals – but the children didn’t seem to mind and we took what we could get!
The animals were provided by Morley Exotic Animal Rescue -
An RSPCA approved trust that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes all exotics, regardless of type – but where re-homing is impossible the animals are used to visit schools and educate local children in good husbandry.
The presentation they gave to the class was one of the most interesting and fun we’ve seen.
They brought in….
Harley – the Barn Owl:
Stinky Dee – a very lovely skunk
Godzilla – a very large Black Throated Monitor Lizard
A young bird eating spider
Tiny – a really, really large Python – but he’s just a baby – the really big ones are much, much larger!
But the absolute star of the show, the animal EVERYONE loved, the animal that was such a hit we actually arranged for him to have a quick walk around the school just to allow more of the pupils to go aaaawwwww over him.
