In Science week, Year 7 had the opportunity to get up close and personal with some amazing animals. Zoolab bought in a range of vertebrates and invertebrates for student to handle and touch. Amongst them were the Madagascan centipede, at 15 cm long that crawled so fast students had to hold it in pairs! They learnt how the tarantula can use its hairs as a weapon and how the albino snake sheds its skin. The giant African Land snail was so large it needed water on its foot to ensure it did not dry out quickly. Students were fascinated with the animals and it was a wonderful opportunity to see and touch some of the animals they have learnt about in the variation topic in Science.
