ANIMAL UK WORKSHOP 12.3.18
Today we were lucky enough to have an animal experience with ANIMAL UK.
We met three incredibly interesting creatures that helped us practice our knowledge of animal groups, evolution and classification.
Daisy- The Tortoise
Daisy was a 12 year old tortoise from Africa. Her shell grows with her and is made from keratin. She is a reptile.

At first we all thought that Angus was a cute little hedgehog. Little did we know that he was a lesser Tenrec, who comes from Madagascar!
He eats insects and is a great climber.
Kiwi- the Burmese Python
Kiwi is a 3 yr old python. She comes from a group of animals called 'Squamata' (lizards and snakes).
Kiwi comes from South East Asia and is a constrictor.
