Zoo Lab came to visit!

Zoo Lab came to visit and we got to meet lots of interesting creatures. Sydney the Millipede had travelled all the way from the Congo and Harry the hissing cockroach was from Madagascar. Everyone was very brave and even if they weren’t keen on the creature they had a go at either holding or stroking. We found out lots of interesting facts – baby scorpions are called scorplings, cockroaches will not eat concrete, glass, plastic, and metal but will eat ANYTHING else!!! Cockroaches can hold their breath under water for 20 minutes and can survive being frozen for a year. Thank you very much to the lady from Zoo Lab as she was very engaging and down to earth.
