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
