Year 7 students at King Harold Academy met creepy crawlies and reptiles found in rainforests around the world when ZooLab visited the school.
The students got the chance to touch and learn about creatures such as the Madagascan hissing cockroach, tarantula, millipedes, African land snails, a stick insect and snake!
Head of Geography Sam Barker-Smith said: "Whilst learning the correct way to handle the creatures, they learnt about their adaptions to the rainforest environment, diets and how easy or difficult it would be for them to survive in these tropical areas."
Student Ella Brancher said: "It was really interesting to see how they live and what they do in the rainforest. It was really fun!”
Student Tyrese Fenton said: "It was really fun meeting different animals and insects from the rainforest.
"My favourite bit was holding the snake!"
