Pupils at a school in Royston have been visited by the 'Spirit of the Wild' this week.
Children in the Early Years classes at Icknield Walk First School were shown a plethora of fascinating animals including a snowy owl, a tarantula, an African dormouse, a bullfrog, a fruit bat and many more.
The visiting animal expert, Ben, taught the children various interesting facts and the meaning of new terminology, such as herbivore, omnivore, carnivore and exoskeleton.
Being invited to touch or hold an animal was a highlight of the children's day.
Year 2 children at the school also took part in a Medieval Day recently.
