This week, we were delighted to have a visit from Phil from Jaws and Claws. We were amazed to learn all about his amazing collection of unusual animals. What was your favourite animal?
It was decided that Brian the enormous snail was very slimy. Many children stroked his shell but only a few would hold him.
I was a little alarmed when the next guest came out: Jimmy the Madagascan hissing cockroach. We were astonished to learn that cockroaches can run at 10 miles an hour, could survive for 2 years in a freezer, hold their breath 2 hours, run through fire, and live for 2 weeks without a head!
We also met Alice the snake, a royal python, Buster the tree frog (who jumped off Isabelle and crawled down Archie’s leg), Rosie the tarantula, a tortoise, Larry the rat, Mel the cane toad and George the beaded dragon.
My favourtie question of the day was aimed at the large lizard: “Do they breathe fire?” 🙂
Please enjoy our photos and the children’s recounts and facts about the creatures.
