The Animal Experience

The Animal Experience

We had an absolutely fantastic response to our FREE animal experience day during October half term. All 150 spaces were fully booked within 2 days of them becoming available. So on Tuesday 24th October, Mitch & Zeta from The Animal Experience Zoo in Ely, Cambridgeshire brought a wonderful selection of their animals to our Learning Zone, where they put on five 45 minute sessions throughout the day. Along with a tarantula, a python, a blue tongued skink & a sugar-glider, they also brought Ronnie, a beautiful barn owl, Spike, a bearded dragon, Houdini, a red & black milk snake and the star of the show, Kit-Kat, an adorable hand-reared meerkat. During each 45 minute session, there was a really interesting talk on each of the animals and a chance for everyone to either hold or stroke the animals. Even those younger children who couldn’t touch or handle the animals were still able to get up very close to them. We absolutely loved hosting this event and will definitely run it again so keep your eyes peeled to future Privilege newsletter events and our Facebook page.
