The day we met Harriet the scorpion and other animals.

On Thursday we had a very¬†interesting afternoon as Zoo Lab brought a range of exciting creatures for us to learn about. We met Sydney the millipede, Elwood the snake, Harry the hissing cockroach and two fancy rats called Thelma and Louise! We discovered millipedes have very tickly feet and once they have been on your skin you can still feel them even when they’ve gone. Cockroaches can grow as big as your hand and rats are very intelligent. Sydney the millipede secretes a yellow liquid when he feels threatened that smells disgusting to all other animals except humans! Sydney didn’t feel threatened with us and was quite happy to sit on our hands.
