Emelia Holmes and the chil­dren of Mother Goose Montes­sori in Bray with Kevin the Cay­man Crocodile dur­ing the visit of Dave’s Jun­gle.

THE boys and girls at Mother Goose Montes­sori came face to face with some very ex­otic an­i­mals at their school re­cently.

The Montes­sori, lo­cated at the Wolfe Tone Youth Club off Ve­vay Road, in­vited Jun­gle Dave to show ev­ery­one spi­ders, snakes, and other crea­tures. The boys and girls met Charlotte, the Mex­i­can red knee Taran­tula, Kevin the Cay­man crocodile, a python, snap­ping tur­tle and a bearded dragon.

Dave showed the chil­dren where webs come from in taran­tu­las, how snakes swal­low their food, and how many legs a mil­li­pede has.

They got to see a snap­ping tur­tle bit­ing a car­rot in half, and dis­cov­ered how the an­i­mals smell, see and hear and got to touch and feel the rep­tiles.

The chil­dren learned where all the crea­tures come from and also about other an­i­mals they might meet in their daily lives
