Pupils and staff from Cumberland School’s Beacon Campus recently welcomed Zoolab, an animal handling experience company.

The budding Zoologists learnt about a selection of reptiles, amphibians and mammals including Bumblebee the fire salamander, Pancake the bearded dragon, Draco the royal python, Dobby the bald fancy rat and Luna the Chilean rose tarantula.

The pupils were given the opportunity to handle the animals and Lydia,  the member of staff from ZooLab, shared facts about life expectancy, diet, offspring, animal care and much, much more.

Which one would you dare to hold?
