"I'd rather have a puppy..."

Fans (and not-such-fans) of tarantulas had a fascinating afternoon with a visit from some animal friends this afternoon courtesy of Mini Monsters! Enormous thanks to the brilliant Ed for bringing Mildred the millipede, Gerald the giant African snail, Ghosty the corn snake, Trinny the tarantula and Winston the bearded dragon to visit the residents.

Our Activities and Wellbeing Coordinator Maria Widdrington says, “It was fantastic to see the effect these brilliant animals had on our residents, they were really engaged, some just lit up! The residents were talking about it all afternoon.”
