Live Animal Handling Session for Children


The children will meet five animals, which include one Blue Tongue Skink, one Corn Snake, one Tortoise, one Rat and one Guinea Pig. Each participant will be invited to stroke or hold each animal, but they can just look if they are nervous. River will bring along his Question Board, where the children will be asked to answer all the questions at the end of the session to reinforce the fact learning element of the sessions. The questions will be age appropriate to the audiences' ability. All children will receive a free sticker and the birthday child will get a Bravery Certificate, The Adventures of River's Rodents and Reptiles Colouring Story Book. Extra Colouring Story Books can be purchased for the other children at £3 each.

Each Animal Handling Session lasts up to 1 hour. Within this hour you will meet the five Animal species of River's Rodents and Reptiles. The session will be full of fun, educational and age appropriate facts. These facts will focus on habitat adaptations, diet and husbandry.
