On Tuesday 3rd July, Zoo Lab visited Year 5. They showed us several rainforest creatures. These creatures included: a snake called Ruby; a Chilean Rose Tarantula called Tilly; a millipede called Gavin and a snail called Alan.
Gavin had a whopping 248 legs! Milliepedes can grow more. Alan can grow up to the size of a football! Wow!
We got to hold and stroke them except for Tilly because when she gets scared she flicks her hair on her legs and if they land on you it starts to itch.
We learnt lots about the rainforest and the life cycles of these animals.
